Hi All,

I am having a problem in display tag. In my application am having a drop down list called "city" with different values hyd, b'lore,and etc.
So when we select one option from the city drop down list and click on submit then a table data is displayed using display tag.
The table data contains diff columns like city name, state,description and etc..
But when i select city as Banglore it is displaying the table data correctly but the data in description column is not displaying in the correct format. It is happening with only when i select particular Banglore. Hw can i format the text in that column..?

description(hyd)
-------------
aaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaa

description(chennai)
-------------
aaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaa

description(when i select banglore)
--------------
aaaa
aaaaa
a
aaa
aaaaaaaa
aaaa
aaaaaa
aa
aaaaaaaaaaaa


In the above table the data in the description column for both chennai and hyd are displaying in the good format.

But in case of Banglore the data is not displaying properly.. That is actually the data can be adjusted in maximum of 3-4 lines but here the data is adjusted inin morethan 6-7 lines. This is only happening with this particular record.. Hw can i do this?? Please Give me any ideas...

I wrote the tag like below.. It is displaying the data in description column in single line..

<display:column property="description" class="normalfont" style="width:2%;white-space:nowrap;"/>

Can any body suggest me what more values can i use in style attribute of display tag..

I used different values for style attribute like,

style=white-space:nowrap / normal / pre / pre-line / pre-wrap / inherit;
sytle=word-wrap:break-word;
style=word-break:break-all;

But the text format is not changing correctly... Please suggest me if some more values are there to format the text.

Thanks,
Vidya
