The Ultimate Toolbox for creating
amazing web sites!
WYSIWYG Web Builder has several ways for adding tables to your website:
• Insert tables with the Table Object
• Insert (RTF) tables in standard text
• Data table extensions (for inserting data from CSV, JSON, MySQL etc.)
Add a table via the Table Object
The table object is a standalone object. A table has columns and rows of cells that can contain text, or other elements like (images, icons, shapes. Tables are useful for the layout of data; they can be used to create columns of text.
- HTML tables are not responsive, this means that the structure is the same for all breakpoints
- Tables are not meant to be used for layout purposes (for example to create flexible layouts), use Layout Grids instead.
Add a (RTF) table in the text object
It is also possible to directly insert (Rich Text Format) tables in a text object. With the ability to set the cell background color, border color and with. Columns and rows can be resized with the mouse. The formatting (font family, font size, color etc.) can be set for multiple cells at once. You can even copy/paste table from Word or Excel. Note however that RTF does not support all Office features.
Data table extensions
The previously describe options use static data. But it's also possible to create a dynamic table by loading data from MySQL, JSON or a CSV file.
Available data table extensions:
• Database Tables
• Bootstrap Table
• Responsive Table
• CSV Create, Update, Update and Delete
• MySQL Create, Update, Update and Delete
When you type text in a table cell it expands horizontally and vertically to accommodate the text that are typed or inserted. You can edit, format, and specify properties (background color or image) for the text, as well as for the table cell, row, column, or table itself. You can easily resize cells, columns, rows, or the entire table by the dragging borders.
Draw a box where you want to position the table. The Insert Table dialog appears. Enter the number of cells and rows required.

The Table Styles gallery (in the Ribbon) allows you to quickly update the style of your tables.
You may know this feature from MS Office. 30 predefined styles are currently available.
You can insert a new table via the toolbar, context menu or by entering the following characters
+----------+-------+ and pressing enter.
In a table cell, the Tab key goes to the next cell and Shift+Tab goes to the previous cell (if any).
If the selection is in the last cell of a table, the Tab key inserts a new row after the last row.
At the end of a table row, the Enter key inserts a new row after the current row.
Important: This is standard Windows functionality. Unfortunately, there are some limitations but we decided to make it available anyway because it may be a useful feature for some users. Please see the help for the latest information.
