Hi,

We are using Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax version 2013.3.1114.45.
I have a GridBoundColumn in RadGrid and set the width and set the wrap to false.

var column = new GridBoundColumn();
column.HeaderStyle.Width =Unit.Percentage(23.0);
column.HeaderStyle.Wrap = true;
column.ItemStyle.Wrap = false;

In any row, if the column text cannot be fit into the column, how to display few dots at the end ?

Original Text : "With the help of the Telerik RadDock control for ASP.NET AJAX you can manage multiple windows and even the layout of your web page."

Currently displayed as (truncated): "With the help of the Telerik RadDock control for ASP.NET AJAX you ca"

Required display format : "With the help of the Telerik RadDock control for ASP.NET AJAX you c..."

How to achieve the "Required display format"  to display few dots at the end of the truncated text in the column cell ?


Thanks
Bhanu.

Hi Bhanu,

I am afraid that the feature which you are looking for is not support by RadGrid. Nevertheless a possible solution is to manually change the text in the cell if the number of character exceeded the cell width. For instance if the cell text is "With the help of the Telerik RadDock control for ASP.NET AJAX you can manage multiple windows and even the layout of your web page.", then you can replace the cell text by the following one "With the help of the Telerik RadDock control for ASP.NET AJAX you c.."
Please check out the following help article which elaborates more on accessing grid table rows and cells.
