How to Insert a Table into PDF

Creating tables with text formatted using standard HTML tags is straightforward using Foxit Quick PDF Library. After positioning and creating the table, set the default HTML styles for the specific HTML tags to be used for formatting, then the content can added using the SetTableCellContent function.

Some sample Delphi code for creating and formatting a PDF table appears below:

// * Create a PDF table with HTML text formatting */

// Set top-left origin

// Create table, set default HTML text styles and add content
id = QP.CreateTable(1, 6);
QP.SetHTMLNormalFont("Default", QP.AddTrueTypeFont("Arial", 0));
QP.SetHTMLBoldFont("Default", QP.AddTrueTypeFont("Arial [Bold]", 0));
QP.SetHTMLItalicFont("Default", QP.AddTrueTypeFont("Arial [Italic]", 0));
QP.SetHTMLBoldItalicFont("Default", QP.AddTrueTypeFont("Arial [BoldItalic]", 0));
QP.SetTableColumnWidth(id, 1, 6, 72);
QP.SetTableCellContent(id, 1, 1, "My Text
Normal Text");
QP.DrawTableRows(id, 36, 36, QP.PageHeight() - 72, 1, 0);

// Save the new document to disk
