radspreadsheet excel behavior
Problem with simple excel behavior.

In excel when you type a string longer than the cell, text is not clipped and shows over other cells.  Then, if you fill adjacent cell, text is then clipped.

I've been able to mimic this behaviour using this css:

.RadSpreadsheet .rssPane .k-spreadsheet-cell {
    overflow: visible !important;

But then, If you highlite those cells with background color  the text is again clipped.  The background color wipe the text.

Attached is a small png to show the problem.

Please fix this to work as excel.  Users are complaining non stop.

Hi JF,

Thank you for your feature request. This is how the control is designed to behave, but your feedback to mimic MS Excel behavior is helpful!

I tested the reported behavior and was able to reproduce it partially in the Overview demo as shown in the following video:

The CSS class override that you proposed does work on my side, and the background color did not hide the text which overlaps the adjacent cell. Am I missing something, can you please clarify? Thank you!
