NAME

LaTeX::Table::Types::TypeI - Interface for LaTeX table types.

DESCRIPTION

This is the type interface (or Moose role), that all type objects must use. LaTeX::Table delegates the LaTeX code generation to type objects. It stores all information we have in easy to use "TEMPLATE VARIABLES". LaTeX::Table ships with very flexible templates, but it is possible to use the template variables defined here to build custom templates.

INTERFACE

generate_latex_code

TEMPLATE VARIABLES

Most options are accessible here:

CENTER, LEFT, RIGHT

Example:

  [% IF CENTER %]\centering
  [% END %]
ENVIRONMENT, STAR, POSITION, SIDEWAYS

These options for floating environments are typically used like:

  [% IF ENVIRONMENT %]\begin{[% ENVIRONMENT %][% IF STAR %]*[% END %]}[% IF POSITION %][[% POSITION %]][% END %]
  ...
  [% END %]
  # the tabular environment here
  ...
  [% IF ENVIRONMENT %] ...
  \end{[% ENVIRONMENT %][% IF STAR %]*[% END %]}[% END %]
CAPTION_TOP, CAPTION_CMD, SHORTCAPTION, CAPTION, CONTINUED, CONTINUEDMSG

The variables to build the caption command. Note that there is NO template for the maincaption option. CAPTION already includes this maincaption if specified.

LABEL

The label:

 [% IF LABEL %]\label{[% LABEL %]}[% END %]
TABULAR_ENVIRONMENT, WIDTH, COLDEF

These three options define the tabular environment:

  \begin{[% TABULAR_ENVIRONMENT %]}[% IF WIDTH %]{[% WIDTH %]}[% END %]{[% COLDEF %]}
FONTFAMILY, FONTSIZE

Example:

  [% IF FONTSIZE %]\[% FONTSIZE %]
  [% END %][% IF FONTFAMILY %]\[% FONTFAMILY %]family
  [% END %]
TABLEHEADMSG, TABLETAIL, TABLELASTTAIL, XENTRYSTRETCH

For the multi-page tables.

MAXWIDTH, FOOTTABLE

Currently only used by LaTeX::Table::Types::Ctable.

In addition, some variables already contain formatted LaTeX code:

HEADER_CODE

The formatted header:

  \toprule
  \multicolumn{2}{c}{Item} &             \\
  \cmidrule(r){1-2}
  Animal                   & Description & Price \\
  \midrule
DATA_CODE

The formatted data:

  Gnat      & per gram & 13.65 \\
            & each     & 0.01  \\
  Gnu       & stuffed  & 92.59 \\
  Emu       & stuffed  & 33.33 \\
  Armadillo & frozen   & 8.99  \\
  \bottomrule
RESIZEBOX_BEGIN_CODE, RESIZEBOX_END_CODE

Everything between these two template variables is resized according the resizebox option.

EXTRA_ROW_HEIGHT_CODE, DEFINE_COLORS_CODE, RULES_COLOR_GLOBAL_CODE, RULES_WIDTH_GLOBAL_CODE

Specified by the theme. EXTRA_ROW_HEIGHT_CODE will contain the corresponding LaTeX extrarowheight command, e.g for '1pt':

    \setlength{\extrarowheight}{1pt}

Otherwise it will contain the empty string. The other template variables will contain the command specified by the corresponding theme option.

Finally, some variables allow access to internal LaTeX::Table variables:

LT_NUM_COLUMNS

Contains the number of columns of the table.

LT_BOTTOM_RULE_CODE

Code that draws the rules at the bottom of the table according the theme options.
