Description Vincent Untz 2004-06-22 21:44:14 UTC
When you do
  gtk_tree_view_column_set_sizing (column, GTK_TREE_VIEW_COLUMN_FIXED);
the text is simply cut at the end of the column. This doesn't look nice and I
think GTK+ should provide a way to ellipsize the text.

The renderer used in gossip does something like this and it really looks nicer.

This should probably be an attribute of GtkCellRendererText.
Comment 2 Nathan Fredrickson 2004-06-25 23:40:28 UTC
This feature requires the same thing I need to add word-wrapping to
GtkCellRendererText: a way to know the actual width of the column from within
