Template:Scrolling table

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This set of templates (/top, /mid, /end) allows the production of tables that scroll horizontally when they're wider than the screen. This is especially useful in comparison tables. Note that only the three subtemplates mentioned above are used to make the tables — this template page serves solely as documentation.

Some notes:

  • The scrollbar only appears if the table is actually wider than the page.
  • This template allows up to 30 row headers passed as parameters to its {{/top}} subtemplate, for convenience.
    • Extra row headers can be added using regular table syntax, between the {{/top}} and the {{/mid}} subtemplates
    • Important: The {{/top}} subtemplate uses zero-width spaces to ensure newlines are added where appropriate. Be careful when editing them.

Usage example[edit]

The following code:

{{Scrolling table/top |first = top header 1
 |left header 1
 |left header 2
 |...
 |left header 30
}}
|-
!left header 31 (extra)
{{Scrolling table/mid}}
|-
! top header 2 !! top header 3 !! top header 4 !! top header 5 !! top header 6 !! top header 7 !! top header 8 !! top header 9 !! top header 10 !! top header 11 !! top header 12 !! top header 13 !! top header 14 !! top header 15 !! top header 16 !! top header 17 !! top header 18 !! top header 19 !! top header 20
