Display icon or image on the Table column header

Hi, 

 

I have a request from my client to show an icon or image on the column header for a Table. I know it is possible for rows, but not too sure if it's achievable on column header.

 

Appreciate any advice to do this. Thanks.

 

cheers!

Hi @Anonymous,

This is not particularly easy to manage - there is currently no native support for images in table headers.

If your users will be using browsers or an OS that supports emoji, then you can use these when naming the columns - once you rename the field and are able to edit the text for the column name, you can bring up the emoji keyboard in Windows 10 by pressing Win + ; (windows key and semi-colon).

Note that even though all emoji are displayed in the keyboard with colour, it is down to the application to support this - note from the screenshot below, some appear in colour and some appear as monotone:

Another alterntive is to use unicode characters, if your OS supports it - you can copy/paste values from a site such as unicode-table.com into the field box, e.g.:

image.png

Note that again, your mileage will vary as to whether these will appear in colour or not, so you may need to experiment.

Hopefully this should give you some ideas on how you might be able to attempt this, shoud you wish to proceed. Good luck!
