Hello Everybody,

In my application module I am having two screen - input screen and confirmation screen. I have to maintain uniform witdh for all screens.

I am going through a strange problem.

In first page(input) I am providing textbox to enter additional information(max length is 120). And on confirmation page I show all this information of input page in a plane table.
It works fine for the sentences but if somebody entery string of 120 character without any spaces te width increases. eg BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB.

Even in this I need my width should remain maintained. I mean the cracters may wrap but my width should not be get effected.

Can somebody suggest any sollutoin.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks & Regards<br /> <br />Anupam
