NAME

wml::std::grid - Layout Grid

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 #use wml::std::grid

 <grid [attributes]>
   <cell [attributes]>...</cell>
     :
   <cell [attributes]>...</cell>
 </grid>



DESCRIPTION

The <grid> container tag provides a mixture between a HTML table and a TeX-like way of specifying its dimensions and the alignment of its cells.

ATTRIBUTES

First the possible attributes for <grid>:
summary This attribute will be inserted into the table tag, see documentation of HTML 4.0 for details on why this attribute is recommended.
layout This specifies the layout of the grid in X and Y dimension, i.e. 3x2 means 3 columns (x-dimension) and 2 rows (y-dimension). Default is 1xNCELL where NCELL is the number of cell tags or in other words: Default is a top-down list.
align This specifies the horizontal alignment of the cells in a row. The argument has to contain as many characters as there are cells in a row. The supported alignment characters are ‘l’ (left), ‘r’ (right) and ‘c’ (center). Default is ‘l...l’ (as much l’s as there are cells in a row).
valign This specifies the vertical alignment of the cells in a column. The argument has to contain as many characters as there are cells in a column. The supported alignment characters are ‘t’ (top), ‘b’ (bottom) and ‘m’ (middle). Default is ‘t...t’ (as much t’s as there are cells in a column).
width This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <table> tag. Use it to set the width of the grid. Default is no specified width.
spacing This is the corresponding attribute to cellspacing of the HTML <table> tag. Use it to set the spacing of cells in the grid, i.e. the space around the content of each cell. Default is 0 (no space).
padding This is the corresponding attribute to <cellpadding> of the HTML <table> tag. Use it to set the padding between cells in the grid, i.e. the inter-cell space. Default is 0 (no space).
border This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <table> tag. Use it to set the border width of the grid. Default is 0 (no border).
bgcolor This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <table> tag. Use it to set the background color of the grid. Default is no specified color.
color This sets the foreground (text) color of the grid’s contents. Actually this sets the default for the same attribute of <cell>. Default is no specified color.
Second the possible attributes for <cell>:
align This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to set the horizontal alignment of the cell’s contents. Default is taken from the same attribute of <grid>.
valign This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to set the vertical alignment of the cell’s contents. Default is taken from the same attribute of <grid>.
bgcolor This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to set the background color of a particular cell. Default is no specified color.
color This sets the foreground (text) color of the cell’s contents. This is done via the HTML <font> tag. Default is no specified color or the color from the same attribute of <grid>.
rowspan This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to span a cell over more then one row of the grid. Default is 1 row.
colspan This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to span a cell over more then one column of the grid. Default is 1 column.
width This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to set the width of the cell. Default is no specified width.
height This is the corresponding attribute of the HTML <td> tag. Use it to set the height of the cell. Default is no specified height.
