I have a ListView control on a ASP form and I want to stop the individual cells from wrapping when the content is wider than the width of the cell.  How can you do this?

I've not tested this, so I'm not 100% sure about the implementation, but to keep text from wrapping in *any* HTML element, this works like a charm:

<span style="white-space: nowrap;">Some really long text here you don't want wrapping.</span>

Open in new window


Put this HTML in your ListView text HTML and it should keep it from wrapping. You might be able to no-wrap the containing DIV instead it's a problem adding it to the ListView iteself.

Brilliant I just surrounded the table in the Layout template with your span and it works:

                        <span style="white-space: nowrap;">
                        <table id="itemPlaceholderContainer" runat="server" border="1" style="background-color:royalblue; border-collapse: collapse;border-color: black;border-style:none;border-width:1px;font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:8pt;">
                            <tr runat="server" style="background-color:royalblue;color: white;">
                                <th runat="server">Select Item</th>
                                <th runat="server">Customer Name</th>
                                <th runat="server">Store Name</th>
                                <th runat="server">Officer Name</th>
                                <th runat="server">Total Amount</th>
                            </tr>
                            <tr id="itemPlaceholder" runat="server" >
                            </tr>
                        </table>
                        </span>

Thanks for your help.
