DynamicPDF CoreSuite for .NET (v8) Forum

I have  a table with 2 columns and 4 rows. I have an other table with just one row and one column. Lets say the first table has data as follows;

     Table 1
Channel1       Pass
Channel2       Fail
Channel3       Pass
Channel4       Fail

Now table 2 is as follows


Now I want table 2 to be taking the same height and width as table1 and it needs to start exactly beside the table 1 so both of them looks like it is one table. Can you please post some pseudo code. Also if You can explain how I can get the "Table 1" and "Table 2" headings that will be great.

You can achieve your requirement by adding two tables to the PDF. You will need to set the calculated X position to the second table to place it besides the first one. Below is the code sample.

            Document document = new Document();
            Page page = new Page();

            //build first table by adding rows and columns.
            Table2 table1 = new Table2(0,0,200,20);
            Column2 colT1C1 = table1.Columns.Add(100);
            Column2 colT1C2 = table1.Columns.Add(100);

            Row2 rowT1Header = table1.Rows.Add();
            Cell2 cellT1H1 = rowT1Header.Cells.Add("HEADER 1");
            Cell2 cellT1H2 = rowT1Header.Cells.Add("HEADER 2");

            for(int i=0;i<4;i++)
                Row2 rowT1R1 = table1.Rows.Add();
                Cell2 cellT1C1 = rowT1R1.Cells.Add("text"+(i+1));
                Cell2 cellT1C2 = rowT1R1.Cells.Add("text"+(i+1));

            table1.Height = table1.GetRequiredHeight();

            //build second table by adding rows and columns.
            float xPosition = table1.X+table1.Width;
            float yPosition = table1.Y;

            Table2 table2 = new Table2(xPosition, yPosition, 100, 20);
            Column2 colT2C1 = table2.Columns.Add(100);
            Row2 rowT2Header = table2.Rows.Add();
            Cell2 cellT2H1 = rowT2Header.Cells.Add("T2 HEADER 1");
            for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++)
                Row2 rowT2R1 = table2.Rows.Add();
                Cell2 cellT2C1 = rowT2R1.Cells.Add("Table2 Text" + (i + 1));
            table2.Height = table2.GetRequiredHeight();
