# Table with different chrome colors [closed]

Can someone suggest some tex code to make tables with various header colors as shown in the examples below:

It would be good if you could post the code of the table you have so far (i.e. without the colors). That'll make it easier for others to help. – Jake Nov 8 '11 at 8:50
That's not necessary good style. The transient can be done using TikZ. Also have a look at the `tabu` package which should have a lot of color options (judging after its eye-cancer causing manual). – Martin Scharrer Nov 8 '11 at 8:51
Also, take a look at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/28087/…, which has some examples of fancy tables. – Jake Nov 8 '11 at 8:52
Note: Such a table may be nice but it isn't smart. The color gradient makes it hard to read. The top head of your third table example is even unreadable. The vertical lines/rules make it hard to read too, because main reading direction should be horizontal and vertical lines stop and confuse the eye instead of directing the eye along the reading direction. Have a look at the booktabs manual to learn how to typeset nice smart tables. – Schweinebacke Nov 8 '11 at 8:59
@MartinScharrer: I agree with the 'eye-cancer' causing look of the manual of `tabu`. :) Btw: the code snippets in the manual are impossible to properly copy-paste (some random spaces appear)... does not really give the impression of careful work. I'd rather use `TikZ`, I experienced some alignment problems with `tabu`. – Count Zero Nov 8 '11 at 9:05
