Here is my predicament. I am working on an AJAX grid. Basically AJAX to load a database table and when wanted click the row to edit, and text fields pop up in place of text, make your changes and you’re done. Anyway, everything works great! My problem lies with the format of the grid. It becomes quite large and overruns the browser window. What I tried to do was trim the entries to only show say 10 characters so instead of seeing ‘Chace Louis Prochazka’ in the field you would see ‘Chace Loui…’ allowing for a better looking table. The only problem is that when converting the text into a text field using the DOM object it input’s the shortened ‘Chace Loui…’ instead of what is really there, the full name.
I know this might not make any sense at all but I hope someone feels my pain!
