How to use CSS in pdf template?

0
Hi there, I saw a solution to my problem (too long string starts onto a new line, which I don't want) in this thread: https://forum.mendix.com/link/questions/20522 problem is that I don't know how to implement it properly. I tried posting the white-space: nowrap; overflow: hidden; into the custom styling on the column of the data grid: but it unfortunately didn't work  it kept posting the text to a new line instead. Could someone tell me how to do this right?

Hello Desiree,

Unfortunately the CSS functionality in the document template is very limited and because of this it's very fiddly to get the styling right. I believe your CSS would work if applied to the span element rather than the table cell - which I don't think you can do.

You can try using a max-height with overflow hidden on the cell, however you need to be very cautious when forcing table proportions as you might end up with unexpected results. 

For example: "max-height: 30px !important; overflow:hidden;"

Hope it helps.
