Re: [R] HTML nsmall vector format problem

Hi Tom

Thanks for the reply.

I see what you are saying - that format does not format using an nsmall vector, though the documentation (of HTML.data.frame) and the example suggest nsmall uses a vector.

Even if I went through and changed the columns with a loop the HTML.data.frame would reformat them according to its formatting so I would still get all the columns with one value of nsmall.

Specifically I want 0 for my first three columns and 4 for the remaining columns in my data frame. (I would also like to control the widths but I guess I may run into the same problem).

I could reprocess the HTML output but that makes generating the HTML a bit redundant!

Regards

John

John,

I don't think nsmall uses a vector. Try the following with format (which
HTML.data.frame uses):


> format(iris[1:2,1:2],nsmall=c(3,1))
Sepal.Length Sepal.Width 1 5.100 3.500 2 4.900 3.000 It looks like you'll have to do a format column by column with a loop. - Tom john seers (IFR) wrote:
