I’m trying to make a table on perspective, but when I enter the key for the data (translating to the column header on the table), it will not let me enter spaces or special characters such as %, (, etc. and tells me that it is an invalid key name.
Is there a way to get around this, I would really love for my column headers to have spaces and special characters
This is expected behavior but there is a simple way around it. The Table in Perspective has the “enableHeader” and “columns > header > title” properties.
- Make sure the enableHeader property is true.
- Then identify the name of the column as it is found in the data property, for example with the default table, the first column would be called ‘city’.
- Finally, create a new array element under the “columns” property, set the “field” property to the corresponding data item.
- You can now adjust the title property for the column header which accepts spaces, special characters, etc.
Here is a screenshot of a new array element under the “columns” property:
Thanks! that works perfectly
