# LaTex Table with Colored alternate Rows

To highlight alternate rows in a table with different colors, use the command

 \rowcolors{1}{blue!15}{white}

{2} row number from where alternate colors should start. Row ‘2’ in this case.
{white} alternate row color is white
Swap the colors, to change the colors ordering.

You have to add ‘xcolor’ package to preamble

 \usepackage[table]{xcolor}

Here is an example code for creating alternate row colored table in . You can try online code compilation [here].

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 \documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[table]{xcolor}   \begin{document} \rowcolors{2}{blue!15}{white} \begin{tabular}{|c | c|} \rowcolor{blue!50} % Heading with different color to highlight it Heading1 & Heading2 \\ \hline Row 1 column 1 & Row 1 column 2 \\ Row 2 column 1 & Row 2 column 2 \\ Row 3 column 1 & Row 3 column 2 \\ Row 4 column 1 & Row 4 column 2 \\ Row 5 column 1 & Row 5 column 2 \\ \hline \end{tabular} \end{document}

Here is the screenshot of the compiled output

But I remember there was an issue when specified that way and did not produce the desired output for me in beamer. The following code worked out for me in a beamer presentation

 \documentclass[xcolor=table]{beamer} \usepackage{xcolor}
