How to Generate RPE report (with IBM RDNG data source) with table caption being printed in center


Prashanth Manohar Gopi (153) | asked Mar 11, 11:38 p.m.

 Hi All,


When I create a table in DNG and add table caption, in the RPE Generated report we are getting table caption at the leftmost side after table.

I wanted to know how to align table caption in RPE template

As a author of the workaround in the ticket I think I should answer this.

For the text element that is displaying the text you should add following code.

var match = {};
var patt = /(<table[^>]>(<caption[^>]>(?:.|\n)?<\/caption>)?(?:.|\n)?<\/table>)/g;
while ((match = patt.exec(div))) {
  var table = match[1];
  var caption = match[2];
  if (caption)
  {
  table = table.replace(caption, "");
  table = '<div  style="text-align:center;"><span>Table '+caption+"</span></div>" + table;
  div = div.replace(match[1], table);
}
}

This code is moving <caption> to span outside of the table (before it). That is only way how I was able to implement it.

The workaround provided by Bartosz is good. You can find the modified template UAS-Functional-SPP.dta that will center-align the table captions.
You can also try the macro solution (works only for Word output and not for PDF output).

Subramanya,

You are wrong because you will be able to generate list of tables using this workaround. If You will read the code carefull it is talking <caption></caption> outside the table and encapsulate this in centered span.

This will still generate properly working ToT. You can check this by yourself or I can provide working example.

Good to know that. Sorry, I should have checked it before commenting. :)

You should return div, else Script Expression will retun undefined value.

var match = {};
var patt = /(<table[^>]*>(<caption[^>]*>(?:.|\n)*?<\/caption>)?(?:.|\n)*?<\/table>)/g;
while (match = patt.exec(div)) {
  var table = match[1];
  var caption = match[2];
  if (caption)
  {
  table = table.replace(caption, "");
  table = '<div  style="text-align:center;"><span>'+caption+"</span></div>" + table;
  div = div.replace(match[1], table);
}
}
div;
