Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Stop and Start Table

A Stop and Start Table page item is used to help control the layout of page items in a region.  What it does is closes the table tags with </table> and then it restarts a new table.  In effect, it is resetting the column widths for the table cells.

Figure 10.32 shows a region without using the start and stop table page item.  The first two page items have the label alignment set to Right.  What this does is cause two table cells (<td>) to be created, one for the label, and one for the field.  Then the History text area has the label alignment set to Above.  What this does is put the history page item in the first table cell which aligns it vertically with the labels from the other page items.

Really, the goal is to move the first and last name fields to the left.  To accomplish this, a Stop and Start Table is added after the last name page item.  Figure 10.33 shows the same region with the stop and start table page item.  The sequence for the stop and start page item is set to a value between the last name and history page items.  Also, the Label attribute of the stop and start table page item should be set to NULL.
