Table control displays information in a tabular format and allows you to create table reports.

You can add a table control by dragging the Table item from the Toolbox onto the report's area.

You can also create two tables simultaneously, for instance, one that shows column titles in the Page Header and one that shows regular information in the Detail band. Select the Table item in the Toolbox and draw a rectangle across these bands.

The table control contains one or more rows. Each row contains one or more cells. See the Report Explorer for a table structure example.

You can double-click the cell to invoke its in-place editor and type the desired static text.

You can adjust the font size of a cell's static text to fit into the cell's boundaries. Use the Fit Text to Bounds button in the toolbar's Text contextual tab, or right-click this cell and select Fit Text to Bounds in the context menu.

Refer to Bind Table Cells to Data to learn about providing dynamic content to table cells.

A table cell is like a Label control - it provides the same options for text formatting, alignment, appearance, interactivity, etc.

You can also make a table cell act as a container for other report controls by dropping the required control from the toolbox on this cell.

If a table cell includes only one control, you can right-click this control and use the Fit Bounds to Container command in the context menu. The same command is available in the toolbar's Layout tab. This command resizes the control so that it occupies all the available cell space (excluding borders).

To transform a table into a set of Label controls, right-click a table or any of its cells and select Convert To Labels. Table cells containing other controls are converted to Panel controls.

You can assign different visual styles for even and odd table rows to improve readability.
