Vertical alignment in table cells not working in generated output

Using RH9 WebHelp. I have created a simple table style. Because I could not find out how to make cell vertical alignment (top, center, bottom)  part of the style definition, I have been applying it manually to individual whole tables using the cell alignment properties.
This worked fine for a while, but at some point I noticed that even though the tables look right in Design view, with top-aligned cells contents, it gets hosed in generating output and all tables now come with vertically centred cell contents even through the in-line formatting for top alignment is still there in the code.
Any ideas?

Hi Mike,
I'm confused to where you applied the vertical alignment. Normally, I would set this for the table cells and not the table.
CSS has indeed an order in rendering: There is a point system for determining the CSS to apply. See ity/ for a short introduction.
And as an extra to the point system, the place where the styling is present, also determines the styling. Browsers use the following hierarchy (in descending order)
User style sheet defined in the browser.
Inline styling.
Style block in page.
External style sheet
You can overwrite styling from a lower order using the !important declaration. You can use this to make sure that inline styling will not be able to overwrite styles from your style sheet. (Unless the inline styles use !important themselves.) Example:
table.mytable td {
     vertical-align: middle !important;
This will make all the content of table cells in the table with the class mytable to be vertically centered.

  • Vertical Alignment in table columns

    Using JHeadstart
    Different display types are differently positioned in table columns. Single text seems vertically centered; text fields with multiple lines are vertically aligned at the top of a table column; vertical radio buttons are vertically aligned at the bottom of a table column. The resulting display is quite messy.
    I have not found any formating option in JHeadStart that allows for controlling vertical alignment. Am I a missing something?
    If JHeadStart 10g does not support controlling vertical alignment directly, how should this be handled? Does JHeadStart 11g add such vertical alignment support?

    If you need anything special considering vertical alignment in tables, you can simply perform that in the resulting JSPX page. In other words, just alter the JSPX file to whatever you need.
    Save your customizations in JHeadstart using velocity templates, so your page is regenerateable while keeping your changes. See the JHeadstart Developers Guide on how to change such customizations in the templates.
    Also in release 11 there is no vertical alignment (yet); I suppose because for most tables, each row just has a single line and vertical alignment is therefore not needed. However, I have put it on the wish-list, so we will check on it later. Thanks!

  • Vertical Alignment in the cell of a ALV webdynpro

    HI Experts,
    As per my requirement i have created an ALV in webdynpro, which has several columns few of the columns have check boxes and few have input fields.
    Now, if I look at my ALV output i observed in the cell which are input fields all the data is bottom aligned but in the other cells the check boxes are top aligned . ( The vertical alignment i am talking about is with respect to each cell ).
    I didnot fins any property either in the ALV or as even in a ordinary table where i can play around with the vertical alignment in a cell.
    Do you think we can change the alignment in cell of a ALV? if so how?
    Thanks in Advance!!

    Best regards,

    OK thanks for looking've obviously got the fixes on your to do lists
    Noticed that the SQL tab when you select an object works fine - displays the
    DDL for the object
    Do you think you'll have functionality so you can select many objects (shift left click) and
    then create a DDL script for them? It looks like you can do this for all objects in a schema but
    the ability to select a subset of objects in a schema would be very useful for our DBA's.
    Couldn't see any good reason for keeping using SQLNavigator
    Many congratulations on producing such a useful tool.
    Kind regards,

    The error message below is performed when the connector tried to remove the user from a user group removeUserFromGroup() (ADCS Remove User From Group), so the user group will not be removed. To delete a group, you have to run the delete group task of AD Group process.
    When the user has already been removed from the group, the connectors shows null to the tcADUtilLDAPController::modifyAttributes():null

  • In SSRS , after exporting report in excel,wrap text property for cell and freeze column for SSRS table header not working in Excel

    I am working no one SSRS my table headers are freeze cangrow property is false and my report is working perfect while rendering data on RDL and i want same report after exporting in Excel also , i want my table header to be freeze and wrap text property
    to work after exporting in my report in excel but its not working ,is there any solution ? any patch ? any other XML code for different rendering ? 

    Hi Amol,
    According to your description, you find the wrap text property and fix column is not working after exporting into Excel. Right?
    In Reporting Services, when exporting to excel file, it has limitation for textbox.
    Text boxes are rendered within one Excel cell. Font size, font face, decoration, and font style are the only formatting that is supported on individual text within an Excel cell.
    Excel adds a default padding of approximately 3.75 points to the left and right sides of cells. If a text box’s padding settings are less than 3.75 points and is just barely wide enough to accommodate the text, the text may wrap in Excel.
    In this scenario, it supposed to be wrap text unless you merge cells. If cells are merged, word-wrap does not work correctly. If any merged cells exist on a row where a text box is rendered with the
    AutoSize property, autosize will not work. For the Fix Data Property, it can't be working in Excel. These are features when exporting to Excel. We can't change it because it's by design.
    Exporting to Microsoft Excel (Report Builder and SSRS)
    If you have any question, please feel free to ask.
    Best Regards,

  • Table cell renderer works with any L&F, but not with Windows

    I created a table cell renderer / editor for a combobox in a table cell. This works all as expected, but if the Look&Feel is, which is the system L&F on Vista, the selected values in the combobox are not shown in the cell after loosing focus. Metal LF and Motif LF work, and a third party one "TinyLF" works as well.

    1) Your custom cell renderer does nothing extra, so you can depend on default renderer.
    2) Instead of extending JLabel and implementing TableCellReneder, you should extend DefaultTableCellRenderer and override its get renderer method because DefaultTableCellRenderer itself extends JLabel and aditionally it does some optimizations etc., which you can miss if you implement your own renderer.
    3) If you set foreground and background color in last else statement also, then you can see the values correctly in windows L&F as well.

  • How to write text vertically in an table cell?

    Is it possible to make a table cell where the
    text would be written along a vertical base line?
    I found how to make a text box and rotate it
    How may I place such a text box in a table cell?

    Hello daniel,
    if the table will not be resized or repositioned a lot, the best way to display what you want to have is to create a textbox with the styles and adjustments you need, rotate it and place it over the table cell. Be sure to make the cell big enough to pretend the text of the textbox would be inside of it. The textbox has to be a fix positioned object in the top layer.
    It's only a work-around, but the best you can achieve.

  • Read Only Element Table Attributes not working since we migrate 3.0.1

    Dear all,
    I have a page to dispaly the content of a journalling table and highlight the changes in red.
    To do it, the guy before me use the read only.
    In the read only condition type he put pl/sql expression.
    the expression is :P120_OLD_DEADLINE_DT NOT LIKE :P120_NEW_DEADLINE_DT
    And in Read Only Element Table Cell(s) Attributes the code is bgcolor="#FF0000"
    In 2.2 the background was red and in now the the background doesn't work.
    Do you have an idea why in 3.0.1 it doesn't work.

    The background works only with the read only condition always.
    In my new item the select is select 10 from dual.
    In the read only condition I select Value of item in expression 1 is not null.
    I put in expression 1 the name of my item :p997_test.
    The read only doesn't work.
    In your test, did you select the condition always or you chose something else ?

  • VALIGN in table cells not responding

    I'm trying to change the vertical alignment of content in a table within a fluid grid layout. Before putting the table into the fluid grid (I made it in a separate html5 document), the alignment was fine, but when I copied it in, VALIGN had no effect, and all content defaults to the top of the cell. Is there any way I can change this? I've tried resetting the VALIGN after copying it into the fluid grid, and the table's code reflects that it should be aligned to the bottom, but it still appears at the top, both in Dreamweaver, and every browser I've tested it in.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi guy -
    I am afraid you are using such obsolete layout methods, you're in for a heap of problems.
    Take a look at the "errors" reported by the W3C validator rset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0
    I would put your logo and header text in the same container, and left float the image.
