Overview

This method is used for inserting rows into a TableView.

Syntax

object:insertRow( options )

This function requires a single argument, options, which is a table that accepts the following parameters:

id (optional)

String. An optional identification to assign to the row. Default value is the row's index.

rowHeight (optional)

Number. The total height of the row in pixels.

rowColor (optional)

Table. Table of two RGB+A color settings, one each for the default and over states.

rowColor = { default={ 1, 1, 1 }, over={ 1, 0.5, 0, 0.2 } }
lineColor (optional)

Table. A table of RGB+A values that define the color of the separator line, assuming lines are set to visible.

lineColor = { 0.5, 0.5, 0.5 }
isCategory (optional)

Boolean. If true, the row will be rendered as a category row. Category rows "stick" to the top of the table view as the user scrolls, indicating that the rows underneath are part of that category.

params (optional)

Table. A table which can contain information pertaining to the specific row. This information can then be accessed (read) in the row rendering function via event.row.params and in the row touch listener via event.target.params.

Example

-- Insert 40 rows
for i = 1, 40 do

    local isCategory = false
    local rowHeight = 36
    local rowColor = { default={ 1, 1, 1 }, over={ 1, 0.5, 0, 0.2 } }
    local lineColor = { 0.5, 0.5, 0.5 }

    -- Make some rows categories
    if ( i == 1 or i == 21 ) then
        isCategory = true
        rowHeight = 40
        rowColor = { default={ 0.8, 0.8, 0.8, 0.8 } }
        lineColor = { 1, 0, 0 }
    end

    -- Insert a row into the tableView
    tableView:insertRow(
        {
            isCategory = isCategory,
            rowHeight = rowHeight,
            rowColor = rowColor,
            lineColor = lineColor,
            params = {}  -- Include custom data in the row
        }
    )
end
