How to: Manipulate a Table's Columns through the Columns Property
This example demonstrates some of the more common operations that can be performed on a table's columns through the Columns property.
The following example creates a new table and then uses the Add method to add columns to the table's Columns collection.
Table tbl = new Table(); int columnsToAdd = 4; for (int x = 0; x < columnsToAdd; x++) tbl.Columns.Add(new TableColumn());
The following example inserts a new TableColumn. The new column is inserted at index position 0, making it the new first column in the table.
The TableColumnCollection collection uses standard zero-based indexing.
The following example accesses some arbitrary properties on columns in the TableColumnCollection collection, referring to particular columns by index.
tbl.Columns.Width = new GridLength(20); tbl.Columns.Background = Brushes.AliceBlue; tbl.Columns.Width = new GridLength(20); tbl.Columns.Background = Brushes.AliceBlue;
The following example gets the number of columns currently hosted by the table.
The following example removes a particular column by reference.
The following example removes a particular column by index.
The following example removes all columns from the table's columns collection.
