fmt_time: Format values as times

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Figures Function ID See Also Examples

View source: R/format_data.R

Description

Format input time values that are character-based and expressed according to the ISO 8601 time format (HH:MM:SS). Once the appropriate data cells are targeted with columns (and, optionally, rows), we can simply apply a preset time style to format the times. The following time styles are available for simpler formatting of ISO times (all using the input time of 14:35:00 in the example output times):

  1. hms: 14:35:00

  2. hm: 14:35

  3. hms_p: 2:35:00 PM

  4. hm_p: 2:35 PM

  5. h_p: 2 PM

We can use the info_time_style() function for a useful reference on all of the possible inputs to time_style.

Usage

1
fmt_time(data, columns, rows = NULL, time_style = 2)

Arguments

data

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

columns

The columns to format. Can either be a series of column names provided in vars(), a vector of column indices, or a helper function focused on selections. The select helper functions are: starts_with(), ends_with(), contains(), matches(), one_of(), and everything().

rows

Optional rows to format. Not providing any value results in all rows in columns being formatted. Can either be a vector of row captions provided c(), a vector of row indices, or a helper function focused on selections. The select helper functions are: starts_with(), ends_with(), contains(), matches(), one_of(), and everything(). We can also use expressions to filter down to the rows we need (e.g., [colname_1] > 100 & [colname_2] < 50).

time_style

The time style to use. Supply a number (from 1 to 5) that corresponds to the preferred time style. Use info_time_style() to see the different numbered and named time presets.

Details

Targeting of values is done through columns and additionally by rows (if nothing is provided for rows then entire columns are selected). A number of helper functions exist to make targeting more effective. Conditional formatting is possible by providing a conditional expression to the rows argument. See the Arguments section for more information on this.

Value

An object of class gt_tbl.
