    I have a simple Scheduler to display scheduled meetings in various rooms.  Whether I use the default appointment display or a custom appointment template, if the subject is long enough, it will wrap the text and cut off anything on line 2 or more.  Any ideas on how to show the whole subject.  This is specific for the month view.

    <telerik:RadScheduler ID="rsVTC" runat="server" DataStartField="dtStartDateTime" DataEndField="dtEndDateTime" DataKeyField="intRoomScheduledId"
                                                DataSubjectField="Title" OverflowBehavior="Expand" SelectedView="MonthView"
                                                DayView-UserSelectable="false" WeekView-UserSelectable="false" MultiDayView-UserSelectable="False" TimelineView-UserSelectable="False" 
                                                Skin="Office2010Blue" Width="100%" AllowDelete="false" AllowEdit="false" AllowInsert="false">
                                                <AppointmentTemplate>
                                                    <div>
                                                        <asp:LinkButton ID="lnkVtcViewRequest" runat="server"><%# Eval("Subject")%></asp:LinkButton>
                                                    </div>
                                                    <div>
                                                        <asp:LinkButton ID="lnkVtcSelectRequest" runat="server" Text="Select" />
                                                    </div>
                                                </AppointmentTemplate>
                                            </telerik:RadScheduler>

    Hi Greg,

    Here is a kb article that can help you with this requirement -
    Auto expand the height of the appointment to accomodate the entire subject in Month view

    Another solution could be to use RadToolTip.

    All the best,

    The CSS in that article did work, however it really screwed up the rest of the scheduler.  I do like the idea of the tooltips and will probably go that route if it is approved.
