View Full Version : grid: span column header over multiple columns

26 Jan 2012, 12:15 PM
I have gxt grid in my web app. I want the caption of one column header to span over multiple columns.

|column1 |column2 |loooooooooooong text|column5

The header is a one-row table. Each cell has a div with a span. div inherits styles:
overflow: hidden;
text-overflow: ellipsis;

I tried to change it to
overflow: visible;
text-overflow: none;

but that didn't help.

I use GXT 2.1.3 and IE9 developmend toolbar to change styles
