Creating Item Tables with Icons


You can create or adjust Item tables (such as the table on UCourseInfo.html) without losing the default icons. See Ares TABLE Tag for a list of all available table customizations.

Table Tags

The following table tags allow you to control the behavior of icons:

  • IconColumn: Specifies the column in which to display item icons.  May be used instead of the BothTitlesIcon and BothTitlesViewedIcon special columns.
  • IconAlign: Valid values are “Left” (default) and “Right”.  When IconColumn is specified, controls the alignment of the icon within the table cell.
  • IconStyle: Valid values are “Icon” (default) and “IconViewed”.  When IconColumn is specified and when viewed in a student context, will control whether or not to display the “New” icon next to the regular item icon if the student has not yet viewed an item.
