Associating labels with infopads
Infopads can have their dimensions labeled. These labels can identify the cells instead of numerical indices that indicate row and column (for example, [10][4]). The labeling action-item uses the functions addRowLabels() or addColLabels(). For example, a table with one entry per day of the week may be labeled after the names of the day.
initialize {
dailyStats := new persistent infopad<cell{avg_resp_time:int,
avg_req_size:int, max_req_size:int}>[7][24]("dailyStats");
dailyStats.addRowLabels("DAYS OF WEEK", list {"Monday", "Tuesday",
"Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday", "Sunday"});
The row labels are specified with the function addRowLabels(). The first argument (here, "DAYS OF WEEK") is a dimension title, qualifying all the remaining labels. When no labels other than the title are specified, you can use either addColTitle(<title>) or addRowTitle(<title>). Columns and rows are defined similarly, with the list of labels assigned one by one to each column or row of the table, starting with column or row 1 by default.
It is possible to change or set the label of a single row or column, using:
dailyStats.setRowLabel(2, "Day2");
dailyStats.setColLabel(1, "morning");
