How can I have a wrapping-enabled multiline textbox in DetailView's BoundField ? I have tried lot's of different combinations (for e.g ItemStyle wrap="true" inside BoundField) but non of that seems to work.
As default only the single line is generated but for example I have Solutions -field which needs this functionality. Writing all to single line is just pain.

Note: I cannot use EditTemplate functionality to add multiline.
<asp:boundfield DataField="solution" HeaderText="solution" SortExpression="solution">
</asp:boundfield>
