View Full Version : How to abbreviate a string as the width of a column grid?
19 Apr 2011, 8:57 AM
In my project, I have a grid and its columns has no fixed size and I can resize the columns. In each column I have a div that contains a string result.
I would like to abbreviate the string as the column width. How can I do this?

If by "abbreviate", you mean adding a "..." when the String is longer than the cell in the grid, it is automatic: GXT uses the text-overflow: ellipsis CSS attribute.
But still, it doesn't work in all browsers: Firefox doesn't support it (at least in 3.6 version).
But you can emulate it. Here is what I did to make it work:
created an ellipsis.xml file with this content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xul:description crop="end" xbl:inherits="value=xbl:text"><children/></xul:description>
and added this in my custom CSS:
/* workaround for ellipsis in FF */
Hope this helps.
Edit: a reference about ellipsis hacks to make it work in all so-called 'modern' browsers:
