Using Reporting Q1 2013. I have a HTMLTextbox inside a data bound table column. When report runs, the HTML content shows up fine but text appears to be trimmed because it's not automatically wrapping. See the attached screen shot.

HTMLTextbox has 'CanGrow = True' and 'CanShrink = False'.

Appreciate your help.

Hi Jay,

This is a known issue with the HTML rendering, caused by the differences in the browsers layout engines. The possible resolutions are to change the used font or test adding Padding on the right in the item.

Thank you Stef. Padding does not work. Any recommendation on fonts that works in IE and Firefox at least? Also, is this issue resolved in the current version?

Hello Jay,

We cannot tell for sure how a font will be interpreted by layout engines. This is not an issue we can workaround at this point, thus the best approach is to test your reports in VS Design HTML Preview. Our tests point Segoe fonts fail to display always as expected, thus you can try to avoid them.

We tried various fonts and other css styling ways but none worked. We ended up removing the control from the reports. Hopefully this issue will be resolved in your next release. Thank you.

Hello Jay,

We will appreciate it if you open a support ticket and send us your report definition and test data as an attachment. This will help us verify if it is the same issue and possibly test if the used fonts are not too small.
