Parameters: This method accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • row: It is a number that denotes the row ID of the row.
  • column: It is a String or Number that denotes the column name or ID of the column.

Return Value: This method returns a String which is the value retrieved from the given row and column of the table.

The examples below illustrate the getString() method in p5.js:



Example 1:

Javascript




function setup() {
  createCanvas(600, 300);
  textSize(18);
  
  text("Click on the button to get all " +
  "string values of the table", 20, 20);
  
  setBtn =
    createButton("Get all table values");
  setBtn.position(30, 40);
  setBtn.mouseClicked(showTable);
  
  // Create the table
  table = new p5.Table();
  
  setTableData();
}
  
function setTableData() {
  table.addColumn('Waterfall');
  table.addColumn('Height');
  
  let tableRow = table.addRow();
  tableRow.setString('Waterfall',
                     'Angel Falls');
  tableRow.setString('Height',
                     '979 metres');
  
  tableRow = table.addRow();
  tableRow.setString('Waterfall', 'Tugela Falls');
  tableRow.setString('Height', '948 metres');
  
  tableRow = table.addRow();
  tableRow.setString('Waterfall', 'Tres Hermanas Falls');
  tableRow.setString('Height', '914 metres');
}
  
function showTable() {
  clear();
  text("The values of the table are retrieved " +
  "using the getString() method", 20, 20);
  
  // Show all the columns present
  for (let c = 0; c < table.getColumnCount(); c++) {
    text(table.columns, 20 + 200 * c, 80);
  }
  
  // Show all the rows currently
  // present in the table
  for (let r = 0; r < table.getRowCount(); r++) {
    for (let c = 0; c < table.getColumnCount(); c++) {
  
      // Get the string at the given row and column
      text(table.getString(r, c),
           20 + 200 * c,
           110 + 20 * r);
    }
  }
}

  text("Enter row and column", 20, 60);
  
  rowInp = createInput();
  rowInp.position(30, 80);
  rowInp.size(30, 20);
  
  colInp = createInput();
  colInp.position(70, 80);
  colInp.size(30, 20);
  
  setBtn =
    createButton("Get value at row and column");
  setBtn.position(30, 110);
  setBtn.mouseClicked(getValueAt);
  
  // Create the table
  table = new p5.Table();
  
  setTableData()
}
  
function setTableData() {
  
  table.addColumn('Waterfall');

}
  
function getValueAt() {
  clear();
  let rowToGet = int(rowInp.value());
  let colToGet = int(colInp.value());
  
  if (rowToGet < table.getRowCount() &&
      colToGet < table.getColumnCount()) {
    text("The value at row " + rowToGet +
         " and column " + colToGet + " is:",
         20, 160);
  
    // Get the string at the given row and column
