The TableStyle class is used to represent the style for a table control. It encapsulates the properties that control the appearance of a table and can be applied to multiple table controls to provide a common appearance.

You can specify an image to display in the background of the table by setting the BackImageUrl property. The amount of spacing between the cells of a table is controlled by the CellSpacing property. The spacing between the contents of a cell and the cell border is specified using the CellPadding property. You can specify whether cell borders are displayed by setting the GridLines property. The horizontal alignment of the table in relation to other elements on the Web Forms page is indicated by the HorizontalAlign property.


This class is primarily used by control developers.

The following example creates a TableStyle object and then uses the ApplyStyle method to apply it to a generated Table object.
