Filter cells by name.

gtable_filter(x, pattern, fixed = FALSE, trim = TRUE)



a gtable object


character string containing a regular expression (or character string for fixed = TRUE) to be matched in the given character vector. Coerced by as.character to a character string if possible. If a character vector of length 2 or more is supplied, the first element is used with a warning. Missing values are allowed except for regexpr and gregexpr.


logical. If TRUE, pattern is a string to be matched as is. Overrides all conflicting arguments.


if TRUE, gtable_trim() will be used to trim off any empty cells.
