Text in my panelbar doesn't wrap within one list item, using the Telerik skin. This forces the whole thing to be too wide. I can see that it is because of the "white-space" css attribute being "nowrap".

Two questions: how can I change this attribute? I want to just override the default setting, maybe by using !important?

Second, if I do change that attribute then the line height is far too big (I can test it via Developer Toolbar for example) - I don't see how to fix that.

I want wrapping and line spacing like in the Vista skin. But I want the "look" of the Telerik skin...

Can anyone help?

Shinu, thanks but that thread refers to a panelbar using a template. I am not using a template, I just need to override the built-in skin's css.

Hi Steve Newbery,

In order to override the white-space property, you can use the following CSS:
div.RadPanelBar_Telerik 
    white-spacenormal !important

The line-height can be adjusted with this CSS:
/* this is for root group items */ 
div.RadPanelBar_Telerik .rpLink 
    line-height13px !important
 
/* this is for subgroup items */ 
div.RadPanelBar_Telerik .rpGroup .rpLink 
    line-height10px !important

Please take note that after changing the line height the height of the items will be changed - this can be fixed by setting padding-top and padding-bottom to the rpLinks accordingly. Also, the properties will be inherited by subgroup items, therefore they will also need some adjustments.

Sincerely yours,
Alex
