Hi Hans,

Thanks for the new feature for row backgrounds, which I tested: it works (though see below) and it is another great feature!
I wanted to add the information on the wiki, but thought it would be better to explain the meanings of \ND and \NL: is the following correct:

\NC = New Column
\NR = New Row
\NL = New Line ?
\ND = ??

Also it seems that when one encloses the tabulated lines into a \startplacetable...\stopplacetable pair, the coloring of the background does not work. Please see below an example.

Best regards: OK

%%% begin row-background.tex
\setuptabulate[backgroundcolor=lightgray]

\starttext

\starttabulate[|||]
   \ND First name \NC Family name\NC \NR
   \NC Hans \NC Hagen \NC \NR
   \NL[darkgray] Wolfgang \NC Schuster \NC \NR
   \NC Aditya \NC Mahajan \NC \NR
   \ND Pablo \NC Rodriguez \NC \NR
\stoptabulate

\startplacetable[title=A nice table, but where are the colors?]
\starttabulate[|||]
   \ND First name \NC Family name\NC \NR
   \NC Hans \NC Hagen \NC \NR
   \NL[darkgray] Wolfgang \NC Schuster \NC \NR
   \NC Aditya \NC Mahajan \NC \NR
   \ND Pablo \NC Rodriguez \NC \NR
\stoptabulate
\stopplacetable

\stoptext
%%% end row-background.tex
