    Hello,

    Is there an update for wordwrap in the RadTextBoxControl or and idea when it might be fixed. I have voted for it in the Issue Tracking service.

    Essentially it wordwraps but splits the word mid-way instead of using whole words.

    Many thanks

    Terry

    Hello Terry,

    Currently, RadTextBoxControlElement behaves like the standard TextBox control. In this sense, the WordWrap property breaks the text in characters and wraps them, so that they fill every row. If you turn off WordWrap, you will see that the whole text will be displayed in long rows, taking only the new row sign ('\n') under consideration.

    A feature request for such wrapping mode already exists in our Public Issue Tracking System under ID 12231. To vote for it and subscribe for its status updates follow this link: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/12231. The more customers vote for it, the higher the feature gets in our TODO list. 

    I hope my answer is helpful. Let me know if you have further questions. I will do my best to assist you.
     

    All the best,
    Stefan

    I have voted for both 12231 and 13466, which appear to be for the same issue.  I tested out the regular winforms Text Box control, and it wraps on whole words and not whatever character ends the line, like I have seen in my testing with the Telerik RadTextBox control.

    Not that I can't write something to handle this, but if there is a fix coming soon, then I would just wait for it rather than add code to handle it and then rip my code back out again later.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Doug is right it is not performing the same way a standard text box works.  It is cutting words off at any point not keeping word together.

    I have to change all my multi line text boxes to be standard one until this is fixed....

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    I can confirm this behavior and I agree with you that it should wrap the whole words.

    @Doug - FYI, I am not able to engage with a tile frame when this case would be addressed. The more votes the item gets the higher is goes in our priority list.

    Kind regards,
    Stefan

    Is this still an issue?  I am having this problem now in IE11 for my existing implementation of this control.  It seems to cut off the last whole word before wrapping.

    I have attached an example.

    Hi John,

    It seems that your question is related to RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, rather than RadControl for WinForms. If so, please address your question in the appropriate forums in order to get it answered: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax.aspx.

    Hello,

    I am still having this problem. Is there a solution for this problem already? Also I tried to check the feature request using the link mentioned here (http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/12231) and it seems the link is broken.

    Could you please help me. Sometimes the meaning of the sentences can be distorted by a bad word wrap.

    Many thanks

    Miguel

    Hi Inelcis,

    Thank you for writing.

    Here is a link to the items in our new feedback portal (the previous system was migrated there): http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/111010. As you can see the issue is now resolved and it will be part of the upcoming Q2 2014 release, due later this month.

    I hope that you find this information useful.

    Do we need to supply a visual example of this?  The standard Winform control DOES NOT do this!

    In the meantime, I have to use the standard WinForms controls for this....

    Hello Wayne,

    As you can see from the feedback item in my previous post, this limitation of the control is already resolved in Q2 2014. So, in order to take advantage of it, feel free to upgrade to our latest version.

    I hope that you find this information useful.
