Table Column Editor

The Table Column editor presents everything you need to control the appearance of a table control. You can customize the overall size of a table control by adjusting the width of individual columns, or by displaying or hiding, or adding or removing columns. You can also tailor the appearance of the columns within your tables, modifying the various properties as desired.

Note To view or change the properties for a host table, use the Table editor.
