Table control

The Table control allows you to create server-programmable tables on ASP.NET pages. If you are creating a static table (one in which you will not add or change content at run time), you should use an HTML table and not a Table control. For information about using Microsoft Expression Web's HTML table designing tools, see Tables.

To add Table control to a page

  • Drag the Table control from the Toolbox task pane to your page.

After you have added a Table control to the page, you can add rows to the row collection. After you have added a row, you can add cells to the row.
