Class TemplateTableLayout

  • public class TemplateTableLayout
    extends Object
    Provides the template table layout which is used by TemplateTable class to define table position.
    • Constructor Detail

      • TemplateTableLayout

        public TemplateTableLayout(Iterable<Double> verticalSeparators,
                                   Iterable<Double> horizontalSeparators)
        Initializes a new instance of the TemplateTableLayout class.
        verticalSeparators - The table columns separators.
        horizontalSeparators - The table rows separators.
    • Method Detail

      • getRectangle

        public Rectangle getRectangle()
        Gets the rectangular area that contains the table.
        An instance of Rectangle class that represents the rectangular area that contains the table.
      • getVerticalSeparators

        public List<Double> getVerticalSeparators()
        Gets the table columns separators.
        A collection of double values that represent x-coordinates of the table columns separators.
      • getHorizontalSeparators

        public List<Double> getHorizontalSeparators()
        Gets the table rows separators.
        A collection of double values that represent y-coordinates of the table rows separators.
      • moveTo

        public TemplateTableLayout moveTo(Point point)
        Creates a new layout with the same size, separators and position in the point.

        This functionality allows to move Table Layout.

        For example, a document has tables on each page (or a set of documents with a table on the page). These tables differ by position and content, but have the same columns and rows. In this case a user can define TemplateTableLayout object at (0, 0) once and then move it to the location of the definite table.

        If the table position depends on the other object of the page, a user can define TemplateTableLayout object based on template document and then move it according to an anchor object. For example, if this is a summary table and it is followed by details table (which can contain a different count of rows). In this case a user can define TemplateTableLayout object on template document (with the known details table rectangle) and then move TemplateTableLayout object according to the difference of details table rectangle of template and real document.

        moveTo(Point) method returns a copy of the current object. A user can pass any coordinates (even negative - then layout will be moved to the left/top).

         // Create a table layout
         TemplateTableLayout layout = new TemplateTableLayout(
             java.util.Arrays.asList(new Double[] { 0.0, 25.0, 150.0, 180.0, 230.0 }),
             java.util.Arrays.asList(new Double[] { 0.0, 15.0, 30.0, 45.0, 60.0, 75.0 }));
         // Print a rectangle
         Rectangle rect = layout.getRectangle();
         // Prints: pos: (0, 0) size: (230, 75)
         System.out.println(String.format("pos: (%d, %d) size: (%d, %d)",
                 rect.getLeft(), rect.getTop(),
                 rect.getSize().getWidth(), rect.getSize().getHeight()));
         // Move layout to the definite table location
         TemplateTableLayout movedLayout = layout.moveTo(new Point(315, 250));
         // Ensure that the first separators are moved:
         System.out.println(movedLayout.getVerticalSeparators().get(0)); // prints: 315
         System.out.println(movedLayout.getHorizontalSeparators().get(0)); // prints: 250
         Rectangle movedRect = movedLayout.getRectangle();
         // Prints: pos: (315, 250) size: (230, 75)
         System.out.println(String.format("pos: (%d, %d) size: (%d, %d)",
                 movedRect.getLeft(), movedRect.getTop(),
                 movedRect.getSize().getWidth(), movedRect.getSize().getHeight()));
         // movedLayout object is a copy of layout object, thus we can tune separators without the impact on the original layout:
         System.out.println(movedLayout.getHorizontalSeparators().size()); // prints: 7
         System.out.println(layout.getHorizontalSeparators().size()); // prints: 6
        point - The position of the new layout.
        A new layout with the same size, separators and position in the point.
