Subject [jira] [Updated] (PIVOT-753) Provide an alternative to whitespace for wrapping long Label text
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2011 19:46:59 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-753?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Roger Whitcomb updated PIVOT-753:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: label.patch

Patch originally attached to PIVOT-623 to implement the "wrapChars:'string'" style on Label
to provide a list of possible characters to break the text on.

Perhaps a better name would be "breakChars".

> For long Label text that doesn't contain whitespace but with "wrapText:true" it would
be nice to have an alternative place to wrap the text.
> Possible Solutions:
> - Provide a user-supplied "wrapChars" string containing suggested break characters
> - Break on either whitespace or some combination of Character attributes (for instance:
DASH_PUNCTUATION or CONNECTOR_PUNCTUATION)
> - If there is no whitespace, then break at the exact boundary on whatever character is
there (could be conditional on another "wrapAnywhere:true" style)
> - Some combination of the above
> - Use ellipsis as in PIVOT-623 without "wrapText" set.
> Note: there was preliminary discussion of this issue as part of the comments in PIVOT-623.
 Moved to a new issue to avoid further confusion of the original ellipsis issue there.
