I have two ideas for future version:

  • Use current versin of Markdig library, which has support of tables etc.
  • create wrapper for some modern browser inside vfp form. Something like VFPCefSharp. I think, that Chromium WebView2 should be better.

Thank You Zdenek

  1. The existing version of Markdig has support for tables etc. (see CreateParser())
  2. Nope - not gonna do it. Too complex to maintain - too unstable in VFP

Reason I'm not using newer versions of Markdig is that newer versions pull in additional dependencies for .NET Standard 2.0 compatibility which adds to files that need to be deployed.

Thanks Rick.

  1. Yes, tables in MarkdownParser really works. I used to test with the {.} attribute before table and that's why it didn't work for me:
{border=1}
| Tables        | Are           | Cool  |
| ------------- |:-------------:| -----:|
| col 3 is      | right-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is      | centered      |   $12 |
| zebra stripes | are neat      |    $1 |
  1. It's clear. I know you have a lot of experience in this area

Let's see if this table renders:

Tables Are Cool
col 3 is right-aligned $1600
col 2 is centered $12
zebra stripes are neat $1

Indeed it does.

I think you forgot to mark the table as source code, so it was generated directly in your text.

Tables without additional attributes work for me and that's enough for me.

Thank you

No that was the idea 😄
