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)
