Hi,

I am currently binding a radgrid to an object in which one of the properties can have a large amount of free text, which causes the text to wrap and the row height to expand to accomodate it. I really want to have the text go to ellipses (e.g. 'mary had a little...') when it runs out of room, but I cannot seem to get it to work. How can I do this for one or more columns?

Hello Philip Barton,

You can use the TextTrimming property of the column.

Thanks for the quick response Stefan.
I did try that, but it doesn't seem to work. I am using:

 

 

 

radGridFindResults.Columns["Comment"].TextTrimming = TextTrimming.WordEllipsis; 

I've got this in the DataLoaded event - should I be doing this someplace else perhaps?

Hello Philip Barton,

I have just tried this and it is working fine on my end. Please find attached a sample project which illustrates this.
