# Table background rule color

In LaTeX, is it possible to set table alternative rule color i.e., first column background color GRAY then hline rule color WHITE(hline), if second column background color WHITE then hline rule color(gray)?

MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[table]{colortbl}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}
\arrayrulecolor{red}
\begin{tabular}{|l!{\color{blue}\vline}>{\columncolor[gray]{.8}}l!{\color{blue}\vline}l|}
\hline
NOUN &VERB &HOW YOU USE/APPLY EACH DOMAIN\\
\hline
Knowledge &Remembering&\\
\hline
Comprehension &Understanding&\\
\hline
Application &Applying&\\
\hline
Analysis &Analyzing&\\
\hline
Synthesis &Creating and Evaluating&\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}
\end{document}


You could quickly get the table and this kind of customizations using the following editor: https://www.latex-tables.com; on the right of the page you can set the border colour.

Or try setting the color for each box, adapting a script like this:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{colortbl}
\usepackage{hhline}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\centering
\refstepcounter{table}
\label{t:test}
\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}
\begin{tabular}{llll}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t  \\
\hhline{->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t  \\
\hhline{>{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t  \\
\hhline{>{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}

\hhline{>{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t  \\
\hhline{>{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t
\end{tabular}
\arrayrulecolor{black}
\end{table}

% or black-white hhline:
\begin{table}
\centering
\refstepcounter{table}
\label{}
\arrayrulecolor{black}
\begin{tabular}{llll}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t  \\
\hhline{->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor{black}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}
t & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}e & s & {\cellcolor[rgb]{0.753,0.753,0.753}}t  \\
\hhline{>{\arrayrulecolor{black}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}->{\arrayrulecolor{black}}->{\arrayrulecolor{white}}-}

\end{tabular}
\arrayrulecolor{black}
