I have a table with 3 columns. I'm trying to make the 3 columns the same size.

I used the following code as per docs. I get the table rendered but the column widths are

not equal. Is something wrong ?

//the column data

$image = new WordFragment($docx);
    $options = array(
    'src' => $tImg,
    'imageAlign' => 'center',
    'scaling' => 80,
    'spacingTop' => 10,
    'spacingBottom' => 0,
    'spacingLeft' => 0,
    'cellSpacing' => 15,    
    'spacingRight' => 0,
    'textWrap' => 0,
    );
    $image->addImage($options);
    $tblRows[] = array(array('colspan' => 3,'value' => $image));
    $tlabel = new WordFragment($docx);
    $tlabel->addText(array(array('text' => 'Stat 1 ','bold' => true,'fontSize' => 10)));
    $ilabel = new WordFragment($docx);
    $ilabel->addText(array(array('text' => 'Stat 2 ','bold' => true,'fontSize' => 10)));
    $mlabel = new WordFragment($docx);
    $mlabel->addText(array(array('text' => 'Stat3','bold' => true,'fontSize' => 10)));
    $tblRows[] = array($tlabel,$ilabel,$mlabel);

//table config

    $tblConfig = array(
        'border' => 'single',
        'cellMargin' => 125,
        'tableStyle' => 'TableGridPHPDOCX',
        'tableAlign' => 'center',
        'columnWidths' => array(1000,1000,1000),
        'textProperties' => array('font' => 'Arial', 'fontSize' => 10),
    );    
    $docx->addTable($tblRows, $tblConfig);

Hello,

The default behaviour of MS Word is autofit table widths. You can set column widths but if the content of a cell doesn't fit a width then MS Word increase it width automatically.

You can force column widths setting tableLayout as fixed:

$tblConfig = array(
        'border' => 'single',
        'cellMargin' => 125,
        'tableStyle' => 'TableGridPHPDOCX',
        'tableAlign' => 'center',
        'columnWidths' => array(1000,1000,1000),
        'textProperties' => array('font' => 'Arial', 'fontSize' => 10),
        'tableLayout' => 'fixed',
);
$docx->addTable($tblRows, $tblConfig);

This option is explained on the addTable API page:
