    Hi folks

    I’m trying to determine the best way to deal with making the text in a table column header visible – the text of the header is fairly long, and in the new HTML player it no longer seems to wrap to a new line as it did in the Flash player.

    I toyed around with setting an “on click” behavior for the column(s) to show a message, but then the column loses focus and doesn’t recognize input. This then creates an endless loop (the user clicks back in the field, gets the message, looses focus again -> repeat).

    Thanks for any help/advice.

    I simply un-check the Show Header box in the properties of the table and use a Small Heading or Text object to create a header for the table columns.

    Hmm – ok, thanks for the help.

    is this still the case? it is quiet a messy solution to use seperate text as headers, as when multiple rows are created in a table to the point a scroll bar is needed, the columns resize and are no longer in line with the text used as headers!

    You make a good case for an enhancement. I have submitted the enhancement request to our development department on behalf of both of you.
