What I was thinking of was somehow cutting of the amount of the description and making that amount shown as a hyperlink or something. When pressed something would popup(not a new window though) and would have the full description but I don't know how to do this.
First I have to hide all the description in a way I can retrieve easy or I need to use ajax to query for that description on click.
So anyone have anyideas or any tips how I could do something like this? Or a better way of doing what I want to do?
If you want it to be wraped even though it does not have any space. You may try to bind it to a textbox with multline enabled. I remember i have done this long back.
Have you tried any CSS possiblities like whitespace with pre,normal etc..
