#27 Option to omit the headers in pgfplotstable


Hi Christian!

First of all, thanks a lot for this awesome package!

I'd like to suggest, if possible, an option to omit the headers when using pgfplotstable.

I have an example here: http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/54990/convert-numpy-array-into-tabular/54997#54997

Since the OP asked about simply plotting a matrix, I'd like to omit the headers. :)

Thank you!

Best wishes,



  • The current unstable contains an "output empty row" style which can be used here.

    The unstable manual contains an example

    \begin{stylekey}{/pgfplots/table/every head row}
    A style which is installed for each first row in the tabular. This can be used to adjust options for column names or to add extra lines/colours.

    % suppress the header row 'col1 col2 col3':
    every head row/.style={output empty row},
    col sep=comma,
    columns/col1/.style={string type,column type=r},
    columns/col2/.style={string type,column type=l},
    columns/col3/.style={string type,column type=l},
    Col A,B,C
    The first column,E,F

    Do you think that is enough here?

    I also posted an equivalent commit to tex.se
