th splits into three

I'm using a jquery pluggin grid , the problem i'm getting is that the <th>  when 'sortable' and 'resizeable'=true, renders with two spans, one for each icon, plus a div for the <th> text and these are all going on different lines, so the table header is 3 lines high.
I can't find any help for the pluggin on it, I don't know if this is by design or what?

Can you post your code or a link to your sample?

Its a bit cumbersome as its html on-the-fly, but here's a screen shot of the DOM explorer + the appearance.

No.  While images let me see visually what you see, they don't let me see the code and figure out what the issue is.  

What you need to do is post a link to a sample. If there is confidential data, create just a new sample page.  http://www.sscce.org/  Just with the basic code that will reproduce your issue.

Once you do that, we can help you.

Can you not see the DOM html? Its as good as it gets as it's dynamically created showing the source won't show anything (except a jQuery call).

>Can you not see the DOM html
No.  

If you are not going to post a link to your test page or perhaps recreate your code in something like jsbin.com or post your actual code here (Please, just the very basic code that will recreate the issue,  not 1000 lines of code) we really can't help.

But the DOM explorer is the only way I can see the html. The only code I put in is:
jQuery(document).ready(function () {
        //debugger;
        createGrid = function () {
            jQuery("#ProductsGrid").jqGrid({

                url: '/ViewProducts/LoadData/',
                postData: {
etc.

Open in new window

It is a bit of a problem to recreate as its a web app behind logins,

I unaccepted your answer.   Only answers that solve your problem should be accepted.

I have asked  you several times to post either a link to your code or to create SAMPLE code.  This might mean you have to work a little by editing your rendered html (View Source, Copy, pasted edit).

You can close out the question by deleting it or if you want to continue, post a link or sample code. Otherwise, what you have provided is not enough to help you out.

Right, I've put it up on the web. You should be able to see it without login. I;ve tested on three browsers, they all look pretty much the same...

I recreated what you did http://jsbin.com/paquyuta/1/
your codeThen looked to see what was done in demo site http://trirand.com/blog/jqgrid/jqgrid.html and recreated that on my own http://jsbin.com/paquyuta/2/ and noticed when I took out the css it looked similar to yours.  The image below has the correct css.
demo siteSo I added the same css they used on your sample and it worked fine. http://jsbin.com/paquyuta/3/
Your code with the correct css fileYou must have either tried to manipulate their css file or used something old.  If you are trying to change the theme it is best to use themeroller http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/

Wow! thanks. It must be an old version of that file ui.JQGrid.css, I didn't edit it directly.
