Topic: Datatable Column Truncating Data

Colin S free asked 3 years ago

One column of my datatable has a long string in it. I need the entire string to be shown to the user, but the datatable is truncating the string after a certain number of characters and ending it with ...

Is there a way to make the column width expand to fit the string, wrap the string onto multiple lines, or at least add a tooltip that gives the entire string?

Thank you!

Try to add this in your styles:

.datatable table td, .datatable table th {
    text-overflow: unset;
    max-width: unset;

Thanks, that seems to do the trick!

Please insert min. 20 characters.
