[Maturing] Function is for advanced manipulation of gtsummary tables. It allow users to modify the .$table_body data frame included in each gtsummary object.

If a new column is added to the table, default printing instructions will then be added to .$table_styling. By default, columns are hidden. To show a column, add a column header with modify_header().

modify_table_body(x, fun, ...)



gtsummary object


A function or formula. If a function, it is used as is. If a formula, e.g. fun = ~ .x %>% arrange(variable), it is converted to a function. The argument passed to fun= is x$table_body.


Additional arguments passed on to the mapped function
