Arrange the elements of the argument in a two-dimensional grid with row coloring that helps comprehension

Contributed by: Anton Antonov

ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arg]

arranges the elements of arg in a two-dimensional grid.

Details and Options

ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"] behaves like TableForm but its implementation uses Grid.
If the first argument cannot be interpreted as a two-dimensional full array, it is completed to a two-dimensional array using empty strings.
If necessary, the rows are completed with empty strings.
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"] takes all options of Grid, along with the following additional options:
"RowBackground" {White,GrayLevel[0.96]} alternating row backgrounds
TableHeadings Automatic row and column table headings
"TableHeadingsStyle" {Blue,FontFamily -> ”Times”} style applied to the table headings

Examples

Basic Examples (2) 

Here is a grid table form of a full integer array:

In[1]:=
SeedRandom[23];
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomInteger[100, {5, 7}]]
Out[2]=

Here is a grid table form of a nested list of integers that is not a full array:

In[3]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][
 Table[RandomInteger[100, i], {i, 3, 7}]]
Out[3]=

Scope (4) 

Table headings can be specified:

In[4]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomInteger[100, {5, 7}], TableHeadings -> {RandomWord[5], RandomWord[7]}]
Out[4]=

If needed, various completions of the data and table headings are made in order to produce the final tabular form:

In[5]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][
 Table[RandomInteger[100, i], {i, 3, 7}], TableHeadings -> {RandomWord[3], RandomWord[3]}]
Out[5]=

GridTableForm can be invoked over Dataset objects; if the dataset has column names, then they are used as table headings:

In[7]:=

Out[7]=

Excess table headings are ignored:

In[8]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomInteger[100, {3, 3}], TableHeadings -> {RandomWord[8], RandomWord[5]}]
Out[8]=

Options (4) 

RowBackground (1) 

The following table demonstrates the effect of different row background specifications:

In[9]:=
arr = RandomInteger[100, {4, 3}];
bgs = {{None}, Automatic, LightGreen, {Nest[Lighter, Pink, 4], LightBlue}};
ResourceFunction[
 "GridTableForm"][{#, ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr, "RowBackground" -> #]} & /@
   bgs, TableHeadings -> {"\"RowBackground\" value", "Grid"}, "RowBackground" -> {White, White}]
Out[10]=

TableHeadings (2) 

The following table demonstrates the effect of different table headings specifications:

In[11]:=
SeedRandom[89];
arr = RandomInteger[100, {4, 3}];
ths = {Automatic, RandomWord[Dimensions[arr][[2]]], {RandomWord[2], Automatic}, {RandomWord[Dimensions[arr][[1]]]}, {RandomWord[
     Dimensions[arr][[1]]], RandomWord[Dimensions[arr][[2]]]}};
ResourceFunction[
 "GridTableForm"][{#, ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr, TableHeadings -> #]} & /@ ths, TableHeadings -> {"\"TableHeadings\" value", "Grid"}]
Out[12]=

If the row headings or column headings are too short, they are completed with SpanFromAbove and SpanFromLeft, respectively:

In[13]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomInteger[100, {5, 7}], TableHeadings -> {RandomWord[3], RandomWord[3]}]
Out[13]=

Grid options (1) 

GridTableForm takes all options of Grid:

In[14]:=
arr = RandomInteger[100, {4, 3}];
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr, "RowBackground" -> Blue, Background -> LightGreen, Dividers -> All, FrameStyle -> Directive[Red, Bold, Dotted]]
Out[7]=

Applications (3) 

Show a sample of machine learning data with corresponding variable names:

In[15]:=
arr = Flatten@*List @@@ RandomSample[ExampleData[{"MachineLearning", "Titanic"}, "Data"], 12];
header = Flatten@*List @@ ExampleData[{"MachineLearning", "Titanic"}, "VariableDescriptions"];
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr, TableHeadings -> header]
Out[16]=

When studying data arrays, the use of the ResourceFunction RecordsSummary can be completed with GridTableForm:

In[17]:=
arr = Normal[ExampleData[{"Dataset", "Titanic"}][Values]];
header = Normal[Keys[ExampleData[{"Dataset", "Titanic"}][[1]]]];
In[18]:=
ResourceFunction["RecordsSummary"][arr, header]
Out[18]=
In[19]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomSample[arr, 12], TableHeadings -> header]
Out[19]=

Show all rows and columns of a dataset:

In[20]:=
SeedRandom[32];
dsRand = ResourceFunction["RandomTabularDataset"][{25, 15}, "Generators" -> {RandomInteger, RandomReal}];
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][dsRand]
Out[22]=

Properties and Relations (2) 

GridTableForm is related to both TableForm and Grid. The relation with TableForm can be seen in this example:

In[23]:=
SeedRandom[14];
arr3 = RandomInteger[100, {4, 3}];
header = RandomWord[3];
In[24]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr3, TableHeadings -> {Automatic, header}]
Out[24]=
In[25]:=
TableForm[arr3, TableHeadings -> {Automatic, header}]
Out[25]=

In order to produce a similar result using Grid, several data "augmentations" and option specifications have to be made:

In[26]:=
Grid[Prepend[MapThread[Prepend, {arr3, Range[Length[arr3]]}], Prepend[header, ""]], Dividers -> {{False, True}, {False, True}}]
Out[26]=

Possible Issues (3) 

If the specified table headings are styled, the specification given to the option "TableHeadingsStyle" has no effect:

In[27]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomInteger[100, {5, 7}], TableHeadings -> Map[Style[#, Red, Bold] &, RandomWord[7]], "TableHeadingsStyle" -> Black]
Out[27]=

The background is extended for the extended row names:

In[28]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][RandomInteger[100, {5, 7}], TableHeadings -> {RandomWord[3], RandomWord[3]}]
Out[28]=

If the specified table headings value is a list with one element, that element is treated as a row names specification. Compare the following examples:

In[29]:=
arr4 = RandomInteger[100, {3, 5}];
header = RandomWord[5];
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr4, TableHeadings -> {header}]
Out[18]=
In[30]:=
ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][arr4, TableHeadings -> header]
Out[30]=

Neat Examples (1) 

This example is similar to the "neat example" in the function page of TableForm:

In[31]:=
Style[ResourceFunction["GridTableForm"][
  Table[StirlingS2[n, k], {n, 1, 28}, {k, 1, 28}], FrameStyle -> {White}, Dividers -> None, "RowBackground" -> {White, LightBlue}], 2, Bold, Red]
Out[31]=
