How to make text of labels/buttons "no wrap" in Web Client

Postby rossent » Fri Nov 16, 2012 10:10 am

In Smart Client, if the text which is displayed in a label or button exceeds the length of the control, the text gets "trimmed" with the "..." indication at the end. This is very good because when the text is localized, certain translations can be too long but the user can still see the first part of the text and there is a good indication that the displayed text is not the actual full text.
In the Web Client, the text wraps on a new line and depending on the height of the control, the text may become unreadable or the text could be wrapped in such a way that the users do not realize that they are not seeing the full text. Is there a way to set a "nowrap" property for certain labels and buttons in the Web Client?

i kind of thought we did that already by default.
But you are saying that buttons and labels do wrap? Make a case for that so that we can look into that.
