The cell_fill() helper function is to be used with the tab_style() function, which itself allows for the setting of custom styles to one or more cells. Specifically, the call to cell_fill() should be bound to the styles argument of tab_style().

cell_fill(color = "#D3D3D3", alpha = NULL)

Arguments

color

The fill color. If nothing is provided, then "#D3D3D3" (light gray) will be used as a default.

alpha

An optional alpha transparency value for the color as single value in the range of 0 (fully transparent) to 1 (fully opaque). If not provided the fill color will either be fully opaque or use alpha information from the color value if it is supplied in the #RRGGBBAA format.

Value

A list object of class cell_styles.

    style = cell_fill(color = "lightblue"),
    locations = cells_body(
      columns = num,
      rows = num >= 5000)
  ) %>%
  tab_style(
    style = cell_fill(color = "gray85"),
    locations = cells_body(
      columns = currency,
      rows = currency < 100
