Autofit worked fine in version 3.  Updated to version 8 and the same php script wasnt autofitting content to the tables.  I tried forcing the tableLayout property to "autofit' but that failed as well.

Finally, I jsut downloaded the sampe script from the api documenation, and that failed to autofit as well.  So, I'm convniced its not my script.  

Code for table attached (from api).  

<?php require_once 'phpdocx/classes/CreateDocx.php';
$docx = new CreateDocx();

$valuesTable = array(
    array(
        11,12,13,14
    ),
    array(
        21,22,23,24
    ),
    array(
        31,32,33,34
    ),
);
$paramsTable = array(
    'border' => 'single',
    'tableAlign' => 'center',
    'borderWidth' => 10,
    'borderColor' => 'B70000',
    'textProperties' => array('bold' => true, 'font' => 'Algerian', 'fontSize' => 18),
);
$docx->addTable($valuesTable, $paramsTable);

$docx->createDocx('example_addTable_1'); 

$direc = 'phpdocx/Proposal';

$docx->createDocx('Proposal'); 
header('Location: /Proposal.docx');   
?>

Hello,

The issue comes from the default width. If you open the table properties with MS Word, you can see that "Automatically resize to fit contents" is enabled, but as the script doesn't set a table width, then phpdocx sets it as 100% pct.

You can set a custom table width (as 0) to get the output you want:

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$valuesTable = array(
    array(
        11,
        12,
        13,
        14
    ),
    array(
        21,
        22,
        23,
        24
    ),
    array(
        31,
        32,
        33,
        34
    ),

);

$paramsTable = array(
    'border' => 'single',
    'tableAlign' => 'center',
    'borderWidth' => 10,
    'borderColor' => 'B70000',
    'textProperties' => array('bold' => true, 'font' => 'Algerian', 'fontSize' => 18),
    'tableLayout' => 'autofit', // this is the default value
    'tableWidth' => array('type' =>'pct', 'value' => 0),
);

$docx->addTable($valuesTable, $paramsTable);

$docx->createDocx('output');

Adding that line to your script, the autofit will work perfectly:

'tableWidth' => array('type' =>'pct', 'value' => 0)

Also please note that as many DOCX readers can't handle auto values correctly, we recommend adding fixed sizes to get the best compatibility. We are going to add this information to the API page.

Regards.
