1.6. Creating New Table Styles

1.6.1. Using Event Processing

SDF's event processing feature makes it easy to create a new table style from an existing one. For example, the following line makes schedule a variation of the shade style:

!on table 'schedule';; $style='shade'; $param{"wide"} = 1

1.6.2. Using Mapping Tables

SDF uses the tablestyles filter to define the mapping between an SDF table style and a target table style. For example:

!block tablestyles
Name    To
columns Columns
rows    Rows
grid    Grid
plain   Plain
box     Box
shade   Shade

1.6.3. Creating New Target Phrase Styles

SDF makes it easy to define new target table styles by inheriting configuration details from an existing style.

See the look/simple/mif.sdn file in the SDF distribution for examples.
