Working with WPF Table using C# - Part II

In the previous article, Working with WPF Table using XAML - Part I, we discovered how to perform this task using XAML. Now, we will see how to do the same using C#.

In the previous article, Working with WPF Table using XAML - Part I, we discovered how to perform this task using XAML. Now, we will see how to do the same using C#. Let's take the previous example; witch is North African countries representation table.

Remarque: The images used in the project could be reached in those links:

Image reachable in Rename it as
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunisia TunisianFlag.png
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algeria AlgerianFlag.png
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morroco MorrocoFlag.png
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lybia LybianFlag.png
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauritania MauritanianFlag.png

After renaming images, add them to the project by copying and pasting them in the Debug project folder.

Now add this code to the code behind zone:

private void InitializeTable()

{

//Configure the window width

 this.Width = 700;

/* The table object must be contained in a parent

    ontainer at the contrast of the grid one*/

 

FlowDocument oDoc = new FlowDocument();

 

// Create the Table object instance

Table oTable = new Table();

// Append the table to the document

oDoc.Blocks.Add(oTable);

 

// Create 5 columns and add them to the table's Columns collection.

int numberOfColumns = 5;

for (int x = 0; x < numberOfColumns; x++)

{

    oTable.Columns.Add(new TableColumn());

    oTable.Columns[x].Width = new GridLength(130);

}

// Create and add an empty TableRowGroup Rows.

oTable.RowGroups.Add(new TableRowGroup());

 

// Add the table head row.

oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows.Add(new TableRow());

//Configure the table head row

TableRow currentRow = oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows[0];

currentRow.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Navy;

currentRow.Foreground = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.White;

 

// Add the header row with content,

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Country"))));

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Flag"))));

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Calling code"))));

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Internet TLD"))));

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Time zone"))));

 

//Add Libya data row

oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows.Add(new TableRow());

currentRow = oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows[1];

//Configure the row layout

currentRow.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.White;

currentRow.Foreground = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Navy;

//Add the country name in the first cell

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Libya"))));

//Add the country flag in the second cell

BitmapImage bmp0 = new BitmapImage();

System.Windows.Controls.Image img0 = new System.Windows.Controls.Image();

bmp0.BeginInit();

bmp0.UriSource = new Uri("LybianFlag.png", UriKind.Relative);

bmp0.EndInit();

Paragraph oParagraph0 = new Paragraph();

oParagraph0.Background = new ImageBrush(bmp0);

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(oParagraph0));

//Add the calling code

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("218"))));

//Add the internet TLD

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run(".ly"))));

//Add the Time Zone

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("GMT + 2 "))));

 

//Add Tunisia data row

oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows.Add(new TableRow());

currentRow = oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows[2];

//Configure the row layout

currentRow.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Azure;

currentRow.Foreground = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Navy;

//Add the country name in the first cell

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Tunisia"))));

//Add the country flag in the second cell

BitmapImage bmp1 = new BitmapImage();

bmp1.BeginInit();

bmp1.UriSource = new Uri("TunisianFlag.png", UriKind.Relative);

bmp1.EndInit();

Paragraph oParagraph1 = new Paragraph();

oParagraph1.Background = new ImageBrush(bmp1);

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(oParagraph1));

//Add the calling code

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("216"))));

//Add the internet TLD

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run(".tn"))));

//Add the Time Zone

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("GMT + 1 "))));

 

//Add Algeria data row

oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows.Add(new TableRow());

currentRow = oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows[3];

//Configure the row layout

currentRow.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.White;

currentRow.Foreground = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Navy;

//Add the country name in the first cell

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Algeria"))));

//Add the country flag in the second cell

BitmapImage bmp2 = new BitmapImage();

bmp2.BeginInit();

bmp2.UriSource = new Uri("AlgerianFlag.png", UriKind.Relative);

bmp2.EndInit();

Paragraph oParagraph2 = new Paragraph();

oParagraph2.Background = new ImageBrush(bmp2);

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(oParagraph2));

//Add the calling code

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("213"))));

//Add the internet TLD

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run(".dz"))));

//Add the Time Zone

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("GMT + 1 "))));

 

//Add Morroco data row

oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows.Add(new TableRow());

currentRow = oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows[4];

//Configure the row layout

currentRow.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.White;

currentRow.Foreground = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Navy;

//Add the country name in the first cell

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Morroco"))));

//Add the country flag in the second cell

BitmapImage bmp3 = new BitmapImage();

bmp3.BeginInit();

bmp3.UriSource = new Uri("MorrocoFlag.png", UriKind.Relative);

bmp3.EndInit();

Paragraph oParagraph3 = new Paragraph();

oParagraph3.Background = new ImageBrush(bmp3);

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(oParagraph3));

//Add the calling code

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("212"))));

//Add the internet TLD

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run(".ma"))));

//Add the Time Zone

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("GMT"))));

 

//Add Morroco data row

oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows.Add(new TableRow());

currentRow = oTable.RowGroups[0].Rows[5];

//Configure the row layout

currentRow.Background = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.White;

currentRow.Foreground = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Navy;

//Add the country name in the first cell

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("Morroco"))));

//Add the country flag in the second cell

BitmapImage bmp4 = new BitmapImage();

bmp4.BeginInit();

bmp4.UriSource = new Uri("MauritanianFlag.png", UriKind.Relative);

bmp4.EndInit();

Paragraph oParagraph4 = new Paragraph();

oParagraph4.Background = new ImageBrush(bmp4);

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(oParagraph4));

//Add the calling code

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("222"))));

//Add the internet TLD

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run(".mr"))));

//Add the Time Zone

currentRow.Cells.Add(new TableCell(new Paragraph(new Run("GMT"))));

 

//Add the given flow document to the window

this.Content = oDoc; 

}
 
Then, add call the above method from the window constructor

public Window1()

        {

            InitializeComponent();

            InitializeTable();

        }

Finally, run the project and the result will be:

Conclusion:

In part I we discovered how to define and configure a Table object using XAML and in this part we discovered how to perform the same task using C#. That's it.

Good Dotneting!!!
