Is it possible to display a table in skype from bot framework?
I'm building a chatbot with MS bot framework and i've found that the text displayed by the bot is defaulted to be interpretated as markdown. Here is the markdown: #### Chris Butler Ltd * A Point * A Point |Name|Value| |---|---:| |Status|Active| |Balance|£0.00| |Credit Limit|£0.00| |Available Credit|£0.00| The emulator displays a markdown table perfectly When you view it in skype: I'm surprised to see that skype has actually added some hyphens (-)! Does anyone know how to display the table so that skype understands it as a table?
What you have displayed is actually how skype interprets markdown tables: https://docs.botframework.com/en-us/channel-inspector/channels/Skype?f=Markdown&e=example1 Tables: If you are communicating with a channel which supports fixed width fonts or HTML you can use standard table markdown, but because many channels (such as SMS) do not have a known display width and/or have variable width fonts it is not possible to render a table properly on all channels. So, in answer to your question: Does anyone know how to display the table so that skype understands it as a table? What you have is correct, and skype is already interpreting it as a table. Skype just doesn't do a very good job of it. On a related note: there's also a TextFormat property on the reply object, that can be set to xml (Skype Only) see here: https://docs.botframework.com/en-us/csharp/builder/sdkreference/activities.html#textformat This will not fix the table issue you're experiencing either, but might provide more options.
