Wrap Text - Cell Editing is not User Friendly

Dear Concerned,

1. Launch https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/spreadsheet/index

2. Select Column B11, click wrap text from Home toolbar.

3. Start typing in B11 & see cell editor keeps growing and goes beyond screen.

4. This is not user friendly, it should be same as Excel

5. Any alternative or quick fix would be appreciable

Hello,

There is Cells.wrap option in Kendo Spreadsheet which you need to set on the Cell you would like to wrap itself:

 cells: [
                                {
                                    value: "test", background: "rgb(167,214,255)", textAlign: "center", wrap: true
                                }
                            ]

Here is a dojo sample demonstrating this approach:

https://dojo.telerik.com/aHOpuDOH/12 

 

I hope you will find this information useful.

Hi, 

Proposed workaround only stopping the editor to grow width wise but it is hiding content after a certain length, it is not wrapping the text while typing in the editor.

Hi,

This behavior appears to be a bug in Spreadsheet component. I've logged it in our public backlog where you could track it's status: https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/issues/5387

 

As a workaround you could use the approach in this dojo smaple:
