< Tables Overview

There's no documentation about this mode besides in the sources (tabl-ltb.mkii/tabl-ltb.mkiv). It is for huge tables that can spread over several pages horizontally and vertically. It can repeat not only rows (headers, footers) but even columns.

\setupcolors[state=start]
\setuplinetable[n=6,m={2,2,2},regels=25]

\startlinetable
\NC aaa\crlf aaa \NC bb \NC c \NC ddddd \NC eeee \NC ff \NC \NR
\dorecurse{10}
  {\NC aaa \NC bb \NC c \NC ddddd \NC eeee \NC ff \NC \NR}
\stoplinetable

\startlinetable
\NC[style=slanted, color=green, background=color, backgroundcolor=darkred, nx=2, uitlijnen=middle] xxx
                 \NC yy \NC ddddd \NC eeee \NC ff \NC \NR
\dorecurse{10}
  {\NC aaa \NC bb \NC c \NC ddddd \NC eeee \NC ff \NC \NR}
\stoplinetable

Another sample, posted by Hans to the mailing list on 2004-12-14:

\setuplinetable[n=6,lines=40]

\setuplinetable[c][1]   [width=2cm,background=color,backgroundcolor=red]
\setuplinetable[c][4]   [width=3cm,background=color,backgroundcolor=yellow]
\setuplinetable[c][6]   [width=3cm,background=color,backgroundcolor=magenta]
\setuplinetable[r][odd] [background=color,backgroundcolor=gray]
\setuplinetable[r][even][background=color,backgroundcolor=green]
