tcPr (Table Cell Properties)

This element specifies the set of properties which shall be applied a specific table cell. Each unique property is specified by a child element of this element. In any instance where there is a conflict between the table level, table-level exception, or row level properties with a corresponding table cell property, these properties shall overwrite the table or row wide properties.

[Example: Consider a table where the cell width overwrites the table width represented in the following WordprocessingML:

<w:tbl>
  <w:tblPr>
    <w:tblCellMar>
      <w:left w:w="0" w:type="dxa"/>
    </w:tblCellMar>
  </w:tblPr>
  …  <w:tr>
    <w:tc>
      <w:tcPr>
        <w:tcMar>
          <w:left w:w="720" w:type="dxa"/>
        </w:tcMar>
      </w:tcPr>
      …    </w:tc>
  </w:tr>
</w:tbl>

This table cell has a left cell margin of 720 twentieths of a point (one half inch) as specified in the tcMar element, which overwrites the table level setting of 0 left table cell margin. end example]

tcPr (Table Style Conditional Formatting Table Cell Properties)

This element specifies the set of table cell properties which shall be applied to all regions within a table which match the conditional formatting type specified on the parent tblStylePr element. These properties are applied in the order specified via the style hierarchy.

[Example: Consider a table style which contains conditional formatting for its firstRow, defined as follows:

<w:style w:type="table" w:styleId="exampleTableStyle">
  …  <w:tblStylePr w:type="firstRow">
    <w:tcPr>
      <w:tcBorders>
        <w:top w:val="nil" />
        <w:left w:val="nil" />
        <w:bottom w:val="nil" />
        <w:right w:val="nil" />
        <w:insideH w:val="nil" />
        <w:insideV w:val="nil" />
      </w:tcBorders>
    </w:tcPr>
    …  </w:tblStylePr>
</w:style>

The tcPr element specified within the tblStylePr element specifies the set of table cell properties which must be applied to all parts of the table which meet the criteria specified by the type value of firstRow - all of the header rows of the table. In this example, the single table cell property applied is a set of table cell borders via the tcBorders element (§17.4.67). In this case, these cell borders simply reset any previous cell borders to nil. end example]

tcPr (Style Table Cell Properties)

This element specifies the set of table cell properties which shall be applied to the table. These properties are not conditional and shall always be applied (although they are applied before all conditional formatting properties).

[Example: Consider a table style defined as follows:

<w:style w:type="table" w:styleId="exampleTableStyle">
  <w:tcPr>
    <w:tcFitText/>
  </w:tcPr>
</w:style>

The tcPr element specified within the style element specifies the set of table cell properties which must be applied to all parts of the table. In this example, the single table cell property applied is the fit text setting via the tcFitText element (§17.4.68). end example]

The following example creates a table into a word-processing document, and uses the TableCellProperties class to specify the width of the table cell.

namespace TableCellPropertiesEx

                TableRow tableRow = new TableRow();
                TableCell tableCell1 = new TableCell();

                // Specify the width property of the table cell.
                tableCell1.Append(new TableCellProperties(

                // Write some text in the cell.
                tableCell1.Append(new Paragraph(new Run(new Text("Some cell text."))));

                // Append the cell to the row.
                tableRow.Append(tableCell1);

                // Create a second table cell by copying the OuterXml value of the first table cell.
                TableCell tableCell2 = new TableCell(tableCell1.OuterXml);

                // Append the cell to the row.
                tableRow.Append(tableCell2);

                // Append the table row to the table.
                table.Append(tableRow);

                // Append the table to the document.
                document.MainDocumentPart.Document.Body.Append(table);
            }
        }
