Hi, Is there any way to trim down the text based on the cell width.

In Grid, we have cells and label inside the cell. I want to display the text( with no-wrap ) based on the cell width. If the cell width gets increased, i want to display more chars and when decreases need to decrease the text. Basically the text should fit to the cell in a single line like we have in excel.

Thanks, Baskar.S

One way is to calculate the string-width in pixel and adjust your column-width.

public static Double calcWidthOfString(String input) {
    Rectangle2D r = f.getStringBounds(input, new FontRenderContext(null, RenderingHints.VALUE_TEXT_ANTIALIAS_DEFAULT, RenderingHints.VALUE_FRACTIONALMETRICS_DEFAULT));
    return r.getWidth() + COLUMN_MARGIN;
