shortening of long strings (Ajax/Responsive)

shortening of long strings (Ajax/Responsive)

veloopityveloopity Posts: 87Questions: 36Answers: 2

My datatables contain a long (100 chars) string of text plus a few other shorter columns. "Responsive" option with "responsivePriority" make the other columns disappear when I make the viewport smaller, the text columns stay visible, but when I make the viewport too small, they disappear altogether because they are too long. So I need them to get truncated with an ellipsis. This has been discussed in a number of places but there doesn't seem to be a final solution to this. Is there?

    Sounds like you are looking for the Ellipsis plugin.

    only if it allows the full texts to be displayed if the columns can be displayed, shortening the text only if the space gets too narrow ... the examples that I found just shorten texts (adding an ellipsis) even if there would be enough space to show all of it

    ah, it works now without the ellipsis plugin, my css/javascript wizard made it work somehow
