Field overflow within a table loop

Postby Eggy » Wed Apr 21, 2010 7:09 am

What I've got here is a table filled with material data, including the long description.
That description has to be displayed in a column that has its width set to 8cm.

When the description exceeds that 8cm, we don't want it to continue on the next line. It's fine to just print as much as possible within the 8cm and then stop on the same line.

However I haven't been able to find a 'overflow' setting or anything like it. It makes no sense to shorten the description to x characters, since the font isn't monospaced... the length can differ per line.

Is this possible? They're called SMART forms, right? ;)

Really no one with an idea?

I might have made the question more complex than needed...

In short I have a field within a table defined as 5cm wide. When the string I place in that field exceeds 5cm, I want it to print up to 5cm and then stop. No line breaks to the next line. Is it possible?

As far as I recall this was possible in a template, but not in a table... Smartforms are just too smart in this case :)
