[GH #5589] Cell Editor size goes beyond the cell size

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fd2cf5d8870> #<Tag:0x00007fd2cf5d8708>

When I’m trying to edit any cell the cell editor size occupies the entire row size. I want the cell editor’s size not more than cell size. I’m using the community edition on angular 7.
Please suggest.

Hey @adkhan2002

we do not have a fix for this issue yet. Please track progress to this topic for updates https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/5589

Any update on this issue? Text editor overflowing does not look great for the UI.

In your case it’s looks like the default editor behaviour. Not related to the mentioned issue. Please add jsfiddle where we can replicate what you see.

Please find the jsfiddle below. All I need is the text editor should not overflow the size of column.

Please let me know if there is any fix for this.


Hey @vanivkulkarni

https://github.com/handsontable/handsontable/issues/5589 is still waiting for the fix. It hasn’t been scheduled yet.

When it comes to the demo from the last post, like Wojciech said, it looks as expected. The default cell editing should expand the cell while writing but not more than the width of the table. When the editor is going to spread further than the last column it just breaks into two lines.
