How to create a table where some columns have x rows but others have >x rows

I want to create something like this in dash

Hi @ssingh80

See the Row Spanning section of the Dash AG Grid docs:

I want this applied to 3 of the headers?

Oh, your description said rows. OK, the easiest way to format the headers is to use css

This example will show how you can use \n to make line breaks in the headers.

Put the following in a .css file in the /assets folder:

.header-pre .ag-header-cell-text {
    white-space: pre;

then add the \n in the header text where you want:

import dash_ag_grid as dag
from dash import Dash, html

app = Dash(__name__)

columnDefs = [
        "field": "latin_text",
        "headerName": "Latin \nText With \nWord Breaks",
        "width": 200,
        "autoHeaderHeight": True,
        "field": "latin_text",
        "headerName": "Latin Text Without Word Breaks",
        "width": 200,
        "wrapText": True,
        "cellStyle": {"lineHeight": "unset"},

latinText = 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.'

data = [{"latin_text": latinText} for i in range(5)]

app.layout = html.Div(
            defaultColDef={"resizable": True, "sortable": True, "filter": True, },
            dashGridOptions={"rowHeight": 120},

if __name__ == "__main__":
