I want to make a table with specified number of rows&columns on Web screen,

But, while reactive web development, I cannot find/use 'Table' widget, which was available on traditional web development.


On traditional web apps, there are two widgets:

- 'Table Records' widget

- 'Table' widget <-- I want to use this one


On reactive web apps, there is just one widget:

- 'Table' widget (is surely named as 'Table', but this widget behaves as 'Table Records' widget.)


Is there any solution to have customized table?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Chihiro,

As a workaround you can use Columns widgets and Containers inside

Hi Chihiro,

As a best practice, you should avoid using HTML Table elements with HTML5, and as an alternative, use Containers to achieve the same effect.

Here's a couple of links with lots of advices on how to achieve that:

I hope this helps you in any way.

Thank you.

Thanks, I tried it but there were some gaps between columns because of placeholders, so I need something more to do to have gapless table.
