Hosts: Excel
Available in Requirement set Not in a set
Added in 1.1
bindingObj.setTableOptionsAsync(tableOptions [,options] , callback);


Name Type Description Support notes
tableOptions object An object literal containing a list of property name-value pairs that define the table options to apply. Required.
options object Specifies any of the following optional parameters
asyncContext array, boolean, null, number, object, string, or undefined A user-defined item of any type that is returned in the AsyncResult object without being altered.
callback object A function that is invoked when the callback returns, whose only parameter is of type AsyncResult.

Callback Value

When the function you passed to the callback parameter executes, it receives an AsyncResult object that you can access from the callback function's only parameter.

In the callback function passed to the goToByIdAsync method, you can use the properties of the AsyncResult object to return the following information.

Property Use to...
AsyncResult.value Always returns undefined because there is no data or object to retrieve when setting table options.
AsyncResult.status Determine the success or failure of the operation.
AsyncResult.error Access an Error object that provides error information if the operation failed.
AsyncResult.asyncContext Access your user-defined object or value, if you passed one as the asyncContext parameter.


The following example shows how to:

  • Create an object literal that specifies the table formatting options to update on the bound table.

  • Call setTableOptions on a previously bound table (with an id of myBinding) passing the object with formatting settin as the tableOptions parameter.

function updateTableFormatting(){
    var tableOptions = {bandedRows: true, filterButton: false, style: "TableStyleMedium3"};"bindings#myBinding").setTableOptionsAsync(tableOptions, function(asyncResult){});
