Can't see for looking..

edited March 2017 in End User
Hi Team,
D10.1.2, latest RB.
I have atext field in a detail row that has more characters than the width allows.
I'm sure there was a setting to allow the field to keep the width but expand the height of the field dynamically so
all the field characters are shown.

I think this is a case of can't see the forest for the trees. :-(
Where is the setting(s) please?

Regards & TIA,

    Hi Ian,

    TppDBText components have the ability to expand horizontally to fit
    text, using the AutoSize property.

    If you would like text to expand vertically, you will need to use a
    "stretchable" component such as a TppDBMemo. Be sure to set the Stretch
    property to True so it will expand beyond its original height.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Nico,

    Ah Ha! I knew the capability was in there somewhere. ;-)

    Thank you. All sorted.
