The Table block holds values as a set of records.

For information on using dataflow blocks, see Dataflow.

See also: Table Operations dataflow blocks, Working with Tables.

Input/Output Properties

These properties of the Table block can take input and give output.

  • data (table)
  • save (trigger)

data sets and returns the table held by this Table block.

save removes any binding to the data property. When a binding is deleted by invoking save, data currently in the table does not change, even if that data was determined by a binding. See How do I unbind and save the data that is currently held by my table?
