Conditional formatting

Formatting functions accept arguments i and j to select rows and columns to format. These arguments support formulas, index, logical (and character for columns’ names).

ft <- regulartable(head(mtcars))
ft <- color(ft, i = ~ drat > 3, j = ~ vs + am, color = "red")
ft <- bg(ft, i = ~ wt < 3, j = ~ mpg, bg = "#EFEF99")
ft <- bold(ft, i = 2:4, j = "cyl", bold = TRUE)

Using within shiny applications

Use function htmltools_value() to get the html value of the flextable (suitable for an uiOutput).

library(shiny)
library(flextable)

ui <- fluidPage(
  
  titlePanel("mtcars"),
  sidebarLayout(
    sidebarPanel(
      sliderInput("mpg", "mpg Limit", min = 11, max = 33, value = 20)
    ),
    mainPanel(
      uiOutput("mtcars_ft")
    )
  )
)

server <- function(input, output) {
  library(dplyr)
  output$mtcars_ft <- renderUI({
    req(input$mpg)
    mtcars %>%
      mutate(car = rownames(.)) %>%
      select(car, everything()) %>%
      filter(mpg <= input$mpg) %>%
      regulartable() %>%
      theme_booktabs() %>% 
      htmltools_value()
  })
}

# Run the application
shinyApp(ui = ui, server = server)
