Arguments

data

A table object that is created using the gt() function.

container.width, container.height

The width and height of the table's container. Can be specified as a single-length character with units of pixels or as a percentage. If provided as a single-length numeric vector, it is assumed that the value is given in units of pixels. The px() and pct() helper functions can also be used to pass in numeric values and obtain values as pixel or percent units.

container.overflow.x, container.overflow.y

Options to enable scrolling in the horizontal and vertical directions when the table content overflows the container dimensions. Using TRUE (the default for both) means that horizontal or vertical scrolling is enabled to view the entire table in those directions. With FALSE, the table may be clipped if the table width or height exceeds the container.width or container.height.

table.width

The width of the table. Can be specified as a single-length character with units of pixels or as a percentage. If provided as a single-length numeric vector, it is assumed that the value is given in units of pixels. The px() and pct() helper functions can also be used to pass in numeric values and obtain values as pixel or percent units.

table.align

The horizontal alignment of the table in its container. By default, this is "center". Other options are "left" and "right". This will automatically set table.margin.left and table.margin.right to the appropriate values.

table.margin.left, table.margin.right

The size of the margins on the left and right of the table within the container. Can be specified as a single-length character with units of pixels or as a percentage. If provided as a single-length numeric vector, it is assumed that the value is given in units of pixels. The px() and pct() helper functions can also be used to pass in numeric values and obtain values as pixel or percent units. Using table.margin.left or table.margin.right will overwrite any values set by table.align.

table.background.color, heading.background.color, column_labels.background.color, row_group.background.color, stub.background.color, summary_row.background.color, grand_summary_row.background.color, footnotes.background.color, source_notes.background.color

Background colors for the parent element table and the following child elements: heading, column_labels, row_group, stub, summary_row, grand_summary_row, footnotes, and source_notes. A color name or a hexadecimal color code should be provided.

table.font.color, table.font.color.light

The text color used throughout the table. There are two variants: table.font.color is for text overlaid on lighter background colors, and table.font.color.light is automatically used when text needs to be overlaid on darker background colors. A color name or a hexadecimal color code should be provided.

table.font.size, heading.title.font.size, heading.subtitle.font.size, column_labels.font.size, row_group.font.size, footnotes.font.size, source_notes.font.size

The font sizes for the parent text element table and the following child elements: heading.title, heading.subtitle, column_labels, row_group, footnotes, and source_notes. Can be specified as a single-length character vector with units of pixels (e.g., 12px) or as a percentage (e.g., 80\%). If provided as a single-length numeric vector, it is assumed that the value is given in units of pixels. The px() and pct() helper functions can also be used to pass in numeric values and obtain values as pixel or percentage units.

table.border.top.style, table.border.top.width, table.border.top.color, table.border.bottom.style, table.border.bottom.width, table.border.bottom.color

The style, width, and color properties of the table's absolute top and absolute bottom borders.

heading.title.font.weight, heading.subtitle.font.weight, column_labels.font.weight, row_group.font.weight, stub.font.weight

The font weights of the heading.title, heading.subtitle, column_labels, row_group, and stub text elements. Can be a text-based keyword such as "normal", "bold", "lighter", "bolder", or, a numeric value between 1 and 1000, inclusive. Note that only variable fonts may support the numeric mapping of weight.

heading.border.bottom.style, heading.border.bottom.width, heading.border.bottom.color

The style, width, and color properties of the header's bottom border. This border shares space with that of the column_labels location. If the width of this border is larger, then it will be the visible border.

heading.border.lr.style, heading.border.lr.width, heading.border.lr.color

The style, width, and color properties for the left and right borders of the heading location.

column_labels.text_transform, row_group.text_transform, stub.text_transform, summary_row.text_transform, grand_summary_row.text_transform

Options to apply text transformations to the column_labels, row_group, stub, summary_row, and grand_summary_row text elements. Either of the "uppercase", "lowercase", or "capitalize" keywords can be used.

column_labels.border.top.style, column_labels.border.top.width, column_labels.border.top.color

The style, width, and color properties for the top border of the column_labels location. This border shares space with that of the heading location. If dthe width of this border is larger, then it will be the visible border.

column_labels.border.bottom.style, column_labels.border.bottom.width, column_labels.border.bottom.color

The style, width, and color properties for the bottom border of the column_labels location.

column_labels.border.lr.style, column_labels.border.lr.width, column_labels.border.lr.color

The style, width, and color properties for the left and right borders of the column_labels location.

column_labels.hidden

An option to hide the column labels. If providing TRUE then the entire column_labels location won't be seen and the table header (if present) will collapse downward.

row_group.border.top.style, row_group.border.top.width, row_group.border.top.color, row_group.border.bottom.style, row_group.border.bottom.width, row_group.border.bottom.color, row_group.border.left.style, row_group.border.left.width, row_group.border.left.color, row_group.border.right.style, row_group.border.right.width, row_group.border.right.color

The style, width, and color properties for all top, bottom, left, and right borders of the row_group location.

table_body.hlines.style, table_body.hlines.width, table_body.hlines.color, table_body.vlines.style, table_body.vlines.width, table_body.vlines.color

footnotes.sep

The separating characters between adjacent footnotes in the footnotes section. The default value produces a linebreak.

footnotes.marks

The set of sequential marks used to reference and identify each of the footnotes (same input as the opt_footnote_marks() function. We can supply a vector that represents the series of footnote marks. This vector is recycled when its usage goes beyond the length of the set. At each cycle, the marks are simply combined (e.g., * -> ** -> ***). The option exists for providing keywords for certain types of footnote marks. The keyword "numbers" (the default, indicating that we want to use numeric marks). We can use lowercase "letters" or uppercase "LETTERS". There is the option for using a traditional symbol set where "standard" provides four symbols, and, "extended" adds two more symbols, making six.
