Input/Output Properties

The following properties of the Table Row Cells block can take input and give output.

  • table (table)
  • row (integer)
  • column n (string)
  • value n

table receives the table from which you want to get values.

row specifies a row index in the input table.

column n specifies a column name in the input table.

value n sets or returns the cell value at the specified row and column n. In addition, updates to the value n property write to the data source if the data source is a Table block. For other data sources, including other block properties that hold the table data type, changing the value does nothing.


The following image demonstrates an example of the Table Row Cells block. In this example, two cell values are returned: the value in row one, column ID, and the value in row one, column status.
