TableRow.Cells Property

Gets a collection of TableCell objects that represent the cells of a row in a Table control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public virtual TableCellCollection Cells { get; }
/** @property */
public TableCellCollection get_Cells ()

public function get Cells () : TableCellCollection

Property Value

A TableCellCollection object that represents a collection of cells from a row of a Table control.

Use this property to programmatically control a collection of TableCell objects that represent the cells from a row of the Table control. You can programmatically add, insert, or remove a TableCell object from the collection.


This property is only used when building Table controls programmatically. At design time, this property is set by declaring TableCell objects.

This following code example creates a table, programmatically adds elements to the table, and displays the table on the Web page.

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Drawing" %>

        <script runat="server">
            private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                // Create a TableItemStyle object that can be
                // set as the default style for all cells
                // in the table.
                TableItemStyle tableStyle = new TableItemStyle();
                tableStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center;
                tableStyle.VerticalAlign = VerticalAlign.Middle;
                tableStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(100);

                // Create more rows for the table.
                for (int i = 2; i < 10; i++)

                        tempCell.Text = "(" + i + "," + j + ")";

                // Apply the TableItemStyle to all rows in the table.

                    foreach (TableCell c in r.Cells)

                // Create a header for the table.
                TableHeaderCell header = new TableHeaderCell();
                header.RowSpan = 1;
                header.ColumnSpan = 3;
                header.Text = "Table of (x,y) Values";

                // Add the header row to the table.
                Table1.Rows.AddAt(0, headerRow);
