hey,

thats not the one i expect.
i tell the first row with the spacing as some amount of % and then check for the bool var inside that loop.

sample code is here,
   <TABLE BORDER=0 cellpadding="0" width="100%">

    <TR bgcolor="87b77b">
    <td width="15%" align="center">
    <font face="Arial" size="2"><b>Job ID</b></font></td>
    <td width="10%" align="center">
    <font face="Arial" size="2"><b>Passed</b></font></td>
    <td width="10%" align="center">
    <font face="Arial" size="2"><b>Failed</b></font></td>
    <td width="10%" align="center">
    <font face="Arial" size="2"><b>Total</b></font></td>
    </TR>

    <TMPL_LOOP NAME="job_loop">

        <TD align="center"><a href="hiGuiResultsBrowser.cgi?jobid=<TMPL_VAR NAME
="job_id">">   <TMPL_VAR NAME="job_id"></TD>

        <TMPL_IF rep_found>
                <TD>Reports are missing in the location</TD> ------> this comes under only one column. remaining 2 columns are empty. i would like to merge all the columns and display.
        <TMPL_ELSE>
        <TD align="center"><TMPL_VAR NAME="passed"></TD>
        <TD align="center"><TMPL_VAR NAME="failed"></TD>
        <TD align="center"><TMPL_VAR NAME="total"></TD>
        </TMPL_IF>

     </TR>
    </TMPL_LOOP>

   </TABLE>

Subject: [htmltmpl] HTML::Template - need to merge the columns of a table

Hi All,

I need to merge the columns of a table during runtime in HTNL Template.

I have a bool variable set, whenever the cells needs to be merged.
So, chking for that var if its set, need to merge the cells else need to have the cells as defined earlier.

How this can be done in HTML::Template??

Thanks
Senthil
