Description Use addColumn() to add a new column to a Table object. Typically, you will want to specify a title, so the column may be easily referenced later by name. (If no title is specified, the new column's title will be null.) A column type may also be specified, in which case all values stored in this column must be of the same type (e.g., Table.INT or Table.FLOAT). If no type is specified, the default type of STRING is used.
Syntax
.addColumn()
.addColumn(title)
.addColumn(title, type)
Parameters
title String: the title to be used for the new column
type int: the type to be used for the new column: INT, LONG, FLOAT, DOUBLE, or STRING
Returnsvoid
