I have a table using slds-table classes. The only problem I have is some columns are wider than others, and I don't know why:

enter image description here

Here is the code for the table:

<table class="slds-table slds-table_cell-buffer slds-table_bordered slds-table_col-bordered">
        <thead class="header">
            <tr class="slds-line-height_reset header">
                <apex:repeat value="{!numDeptos}" var="numDepto">
                    <th class="" scope="col">
            <apex:repeat value="{!pisos}" var="piso">
                <tr class="slds-hint-parent">
                    <apex:repeat value="{!mapPisosDeptos[piso]}" var="depto">
                        <apex:outputPanel rendered="{!depto.Estado2__c == 'Disponible'}">
                            <td class="cell" style="background-color:lightgreen;" onclick="readCell('{!depto.Id}')" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor='lightblue'" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor ='lightgreen'">
                                <apex:outputText value="${0, number, ###,###,###,##0}">
                                    <apex:param value="{!depto.Standard_Pricebook_Price__c}" />
                        <apex:outputPanel rendered="{!depto.Estado2__c == 'Reservado'}" >
                            <td class="cell" style="background-color:yellow;" onclick="readCell('{!depto.Id}')" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor='lightblue'" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor ='yellow'">
                        <apex:outputPanel rendered="{!depto.Estado2__c == 'Vendido'}">
                            <td class="cell" style="background-color:red;" onclick="readCell('{!depto.Id}')" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor='lightblue'" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor ='red'">

I don't really understand why widths differ between some columns even if they show pretty much the same information.. Not longer texts or anything. Any help is appreciated.

    since you are using standard html tags, maybe this can help you: CSS table td width

    @McCubo it did. Thanks! I'll answer and mention you for the help. Jul 20, 2022 at 15:43

    This is tangential to your main question, so putting this as a comment rather than an answer: the columns in your screenshot that are wider contain the word "RESERVADO" which takes up more width than the other cell content

  • @JeffKranz yes, I did notice that. I just added a min and max width to every cell (enough width so the word fits) and thats that. Jul 20, 2022 at 16:32

I ended up using this answer from the post mentioned by McCubo on the comment.

td, th {
   min-width: 60px; //60px worked for me, depends on every case.
   max-width: 60px;
   overflow: hidden;
