Alternate styles in rows

Alternate styles in rows

I would like to know if there is a way for alternating the colors in a row table? The only post that I found is the one below but it was not helpful. I follow the suggestion in creating a dataassist results page and then copy and paste the code but I did not find the code under the repeating PUBLIC table. Do I have to create an ADMIN result page for the code to get written and if so, is there a way to change the alternating colors?

I noticed that datassist has a repeating table button that has an option for alternating the row colors. I have tried using it but it does not display my result. Is there a tutorial for datassit repeating table?

This is the post that I found
Apply Alternate Styles to Current repeating region

This is the code that datassist wrote for my PUBLIC result page (repeating table)
<table id="WADAResultsTable" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<?php do { ?>
<td class="WADAResultsEntry"><div class="WADAResultThumbArea"><img class="WADAResultThumb" border="0" src="images/<?php echo $row_WADAcl_items["img"]; ?>" alt="Image Name" /></div>
<div class="WADAResultInfoArea">
<div class="WADAResultTitle"><?php echo $row_WADAcl_items["itemID"]; ?></div>
<div class="WADAResultDescription"><?php echo $row_WADAcl_items['itemTitle']; ?></div>
<div class="WADAResultCommerceArea">
<div class="WADAResultCommerceButton">[ button ]</div>
<div class="WADAResultPrice">$49.95</div>
<div class="WADAClearRight"></div>
<?php } while ($row_WADAcl_items = mysql_fetch_assoc($WADAcl_items)); ?>

The alternating colors relies on some php code, the alternate color style being defined, and setting the class to the code that alternates it.

You should start with a page that has a working repeating region that is applied to the tr. From here you can add in this code to the top of the page:


//WA AltClass Iterator
class WA_AltClassIterator     {
WA_AltClassIterator($theDisplayArray = array(1)) {
$this->ClassCounter 0;
$this->ClassArray   $theDisplayArray;
getClass($incrementClass)  {
    if (
sizeof($this->ClassArray) == 0) return "";
      if (
$incrementClass) {
      if (
$this->ClassCounter >= sizeof($this->ClassArray)) $this->ClassCounter 0;
    if (
$this->ClassCounter 0)
//WA Alternating Class
$WARRT_AltClass1 = new WA_AltClassIterator(explode("|""WADAResultsRowDark|"));

Next you will need to add in the style into the head section like this:

.WADAResultsRowDark {
background-color: #DFE4E9;

Finally you need to locate the <tr> that is repeating and apply the following class to it so it looks like this:

<tr class="<?php echo $WARRT_AltClass1->getClass(true); ?>">

You can change the alternating color based on the background color in the style.

Thanks to the OP who worded the title correctly, made it come up readily when I searched the topic.

I was able to apply this code to a page that already had both a Repeating Table and Repeating Region - worked great.
