Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public bool AllowEllipsisInText { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true, to automatically truncate text; otherwise, false.


Set the AllowEllipsisInText property to true to automatically truncate items texts if they don’t fit into the items widths. To indicate that the text is clipped, the control displays an ellipsis (‘…’).


For the combo box that has no columns, the AllowEllipsisInText property is in effect if the ASPxAutoCompleteBoxBase.DropDownWidth property is specified.

The following example illustrates how to use the AllowEllipsisInText property.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    var dataSource = new[]
        new { Column1 = "very very very very long text", Column2 = "2", Column3="3" },
        new { Column1 = "4", Column2 = "5", Column3="very very very very long text" },
        new { Column1 = "7", Column2 = "8", Column3="9" },
    this.ASPxComboBox1.DataSource = dataSource;
