Hi
The code below dynamically adds the following table to my ASP.net web age.
I have deliberately tried to add no border lines but there are lines appearing
What is causing this? How do I stop it?

    Function oTableReport() As Table
        Try

            Dim rowCnt As Integer
            ' Current row count
            Dim rowCtr As Integer
            ' Total number of cells (columns).
            Dim cellCtr As Integer
            ' Current cell counter.
            Dim cellCnt As Integer
            Dim Table1 As New Table
            rowCnt = 2
            cellCnt = 3

            Table1.GridLines = GridLines.None

            For rowCtr = 1 To rowCnt
                Dim tRow As New TableRow()
                tRow.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Aqua
 
                For cellCtr = 1 To cellCnt
                    Dim tCell As New TableCell()
                    tCell.Text = "Row " & rowCtr & ", Cell " & cellCtr
                    tCell.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Aqua
                    'tCell.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Blue
                    ' Add new TableCell object to row.
                    tRow.Cells.Add(tCell)
                Next
                ' Add new row to table.
                Table1.Rows.Add(tRow)
            Next
            Return Table1
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message & " rew33")
        End Try
    End Function

Is there any default style for tables in your site or specific CSS rules applied to this table?

The CSS border-spacing could be one of the rules.
Note: To determine what rules are applied to your table, run developer tools (Press F12) on your IE browser.

Hi murbro,
you can apply inline styles to the  dynamically created table:
Table1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None
tRow.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None
tCell.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None
' etc...

Open in new window

Or you could apply a generic table style in the head of the page
<style type="text/css">
    table {
      border: none; /* this should be enough */
    }
      table tr {
        border: none;
      }
      table td {
        border: none;
      }
  </style>

Open in new window

Respectfully yours,
Alan
