SetCellMarginLeft

SetCellMarginLeft(nValue)

Specify the amount of space which will be left between the left extent of the cell contents and the border of a specific table cell within a table.

Parameters:

Name Type Description
nValue twips

The value for the amount of space to the left extent of the cell measured in twentieths of a point (1/1440 of an inch). If this value is null<c/ode>, then default table cell left margin will be used, otherwise the table cell left margin will be overridden with the specified value for the current cell.

Example

Copy code
builder.CreateFile("docx");
var oDocument = Api.GetDocument();
var oParagraph, oTable, oTableStyle, oCell;
oParagraph = oDocument.GetElement(0);
oParagraph.AddText("We create a 3x3 table and add a half an inch wide left margin to cell #1:");
oTableStyle = oDocument.CreateStyle("CustomTableStyle", "table");
oTableStyle.SetBasedOn(oDocument.GetStyle("Bordered - Accent 5"));
oTable = Api.CreateTable(3, 3);
oTable.SetWidth("percent", 100);
oCell = oTable.GetRow(0).GetCell(0);
oCell.SetCellMarginLeft(720);
oTable.SetStyle(oTableStyle);
oDocument.Push(oTable);
builder.SaveFile("docx", "SetCellMarginLeft.docx");
