Graph IDETables ► Overview

Tables are used to show and edit numeric data in textual format and often show up in a data-oriented Inspector Editor and are utilized by a Spreadsheet. Table cells can represent many data types. For example, a table cell can represent a color in RGBA (red, green, blue and alpha) numeric representation, or a pair of scalars representing a 2D point. That representation is called atomic mode. A cell can also represent one component of a composite atomic. For example, a 2D point can be represented as the X Value in column one and the Y Value in column two. The figure below shows the two different modes for a Function graphic.

To alternate between the modes, click-hold or right click on the table and choose the mode or use the table component drop-down menu (to the right above the table).

The following is an itemization of table features.

Component Selection

The table component is a column, row, single cell, column header, row header or entire table. The following lists operations on such components.

Operations On Component Selection

Once a component is selected then choose one of the following:

The Component drop-down menu is brought forward by right-click, select-hold on that component or by using the Component drop-down menu that is normally positioned at the top-right of the table. That drop-down menu has entries for Delete, Copy, Paste, Cut, Formula (brings forward the Formula Selector), etc.

If you select a row or column and that row or column header shows an arrow then the row or column can be swapped with the adjacent one using the arrow keys on the keyboard. For a Spreadsheet the swap swaps data but does not swap the associations with representations.

It should be noted that if you select only one column or row of data (with a click) then that column or row is extended with a subsequent paste. However, if you shift-click an interval of columns or rows then the subsequent paste wraps over the rectangular cell selection.

Cell Edit

When you click on a cell and then release, without dragging or holding, then the cell editor is brought forward. Once forward the following applies.
