Hi everyone,

i am reporting long datas and i want BIRT to put newline(\n) automatically when data is longer than column size of a table but it doesn't. When i printed the report as pdf , the longer part is disappearing instead of being showed at new line. I can write javascript controls and parse data but it isn't efficient method. is there any method to do it ?

thanks in advance

I have seen this post Jason but it is not a good solution for me because i dont wanna use javascript. it makes my monitoring process slower. sometimes, i am monitoring more than 1000 pages and this javascript runs 1000 times at that situation. I am looking for a built-in method as css or column size tricks.
do you have any other solution ?

thanks in advance

I assume there is no white space in the data as this should cause a wrap
automatically. There are css tricks but they only work on HTML and not
the PDF output. One option may be to implement the js code as an event
handler in java. It may run quicker for you.
