    We are using telerik grid where we display data entered by our users. We  have set fixed column widths and enabled  wrap.

    What  happens is if there is a word w/o space it does not wrap,  rather it gets cut while being displayed.

    What  is the solution  for this - e.g. any grid tools wraps data automatically

    Hello Anand-

    Sorry to hear about your trouble with the long word wrapping. I know that is frustrating!

    Unfortunately, this is a "native" behavior of HTML. Long words that do not have any spaces or "break characters" cannot be wrapped. The solutions are either:

    A) Before binding your data, "clean" it with code that inserts spaces at specific intervals so it can be property wrapped
    B) Let the text "overflow" in to a hidden area (the approach RadGrid provides automatically)

    For more discussion on this HTML issue, check out this discussion on Stackoverflow:

    Hope that helps!

    I got around this problem by using CSS style "word-break:break-all;"

    columns.Bound(c => c.Name).HtmlAttributes(new { @style = "word-break:break-all;" });
