cells_column_spanners: Location helper for targeting the column spanners

View source: R/helpers.R

Description

The cells_column_spanners() function is used to target the cells that contain the table column spanners. This is useful when applying a footnote with tab_footnote() or adding custom style with tab_style(). The function is expressly used in each of those functions' locations argument. The 'column_spanners' location is generated by one or more uses of the tab_spanner() function or the tab_spanner_delim() function.

Usage

1

Arguments

spanners

The names of the spanners that are to be targeted.

Value

A list object with the classes cells_column_spanners and location_cells.

Overview of Location Helper Functions

Location helper functions can be used to target cells with virtually any function that has a locations argument. Here is a listing of all of the location helper functions, with locations corresponding roughly from top to bottom of a table:

When using any of the location helper functions with an appropriate function that has a locations argument (e.g., tab_style()), multiple locations can be targeted by enclosing several cells_*() helper functions in a list() (e.g., list(cells_body(), cells_grand_summary())).
