Embrodak's Guide to Tables Version 4.0

The new version of DnD Online Games has introduced a change to the Table function.
The information from my Old Guide is no longer applicable (except the spreadsheet integration).
I have found the options available and put together this short guide.
These are the functions that I found and have tested to verify they work.
If you find another function out please PM me and I will update the thread and give credit where credit is due.

Please Note. I will use <> to open and close tags. You will need to replace those with [].

1) Table Basics
2) Introduction to Options
3) Option - Header
4) Option - Sorting
5) Option - Auto Numbering
6) Option - Table Width

More to Come.. See Old Guide linked above for Spreadsheet integration.

Basic Table

The opening and Closing Tags are simply <table> and </table>

The data is separated by "|"

Sample
<table>Stat|Score|Mod
STR|10|0
DEX|12|+1
CON|9|-1
INT|17|+3
WIS|10|0
CHA|14|+2
</table>


StatScoreMod
STR100
DEX12+1
CON9-1
INT17+3
WIS100
CHA14+2

I'll use this base table for the rest of this thread.

Introduction to options:

Beyond the basic Table you can insert various Options.

They are inserted in the header and are placed in quotes and separated by Semi-Colons.
The whole option list should be wrapped with quotes.

<table="option1;option2=value;option3='this is a long value with space';option4=value1,value2,value3">

If an option has a value it is assigned with "equal to" mark. (option2)
If the value contains blanks or special characters it has to be wrapped with apostrophes. (option3)
If an option has more than one value they are separated by a comma. (option4)[/QUOTE]

Header

Headers are an option that can be defined. It is simply "head". I've tested it and it appears to be case sensitive, so place in lowercase.

<table="head">

StatScoreMod
STR100
DEX12+1
CON9-1
INT17+3
WIS100
CHA14+2

Notice the difference between this table and that of the table in the Basic post.

Sorting

You can have the table sorted, so you don't have to enter the date in correct order, just have it sorted after the fact.

The code is simply "sort=1d,2,3"

This defines the table to be sorted by column 1, then column 2, then column 3. The "d" after the first column specifies the order: descending (default: ascending)

Sample Sorting Column 2 (the Score)
<table="sort=2,1">
CON9-1
STR100
WIS100
DEX12+1
CHA14+2
INT17+3
StatScoreMod

YOu can see it changed the order so it is showing the lowest score first. Note the Header is also sorter. If you combine the two options it will know not to sort the header row.

Sample Sorting Column 2 (the Score) while maintaining the Header
<table="head;sort=2,1">
StatScoreMod
CON9-1
STR100
WIS100
DEX12+1
CHA14+2
INT17+3

Auto Numbering

There are two options to be defined for auto-numbering - autonum and autonumtitle

AutoNum has 3 options.
autonum=1 autonum=a autonum=A

If left blank it defaults as autonum=1

The 1,a, or A defines that a new first column containing a numbering should be inserted.
1 -> 1, 2, 3, 4, ... , 999, 1000, ....
a -> a, b, c, ... , aa, ab, ... , zz
A -> A, B, C, ... , AA, BB, ... , ZZ

autonumtitle=oneword
or
autonumtitle='long value with spaces'

Defines the title of the autonum-column. Can be left empty.

I don't know why you would want to AutoNumber the Stats Table but this is what it would look like

<table="autonum=1">

1StatScoreMod
2STR100
3DEX12+1
4CON9-1
5INT17+3
6WIS100
7CHA14+2

<table="autonum=1;autonumtitle=Number">

1StatScoreMod
2STR100
3DEX12+1
4CON9-1
5INT17+3
6WIS100
7CHA14+2

Note the above code did nothing. You need to include the Header option for that to work.

<table="head;autonum=1;autonumtitle=Number">

NumberStatScoreMod
1STR100
2DEX12+1
3CON9-1
4INT17+3
5WIS100
6CHA14+2
