textarea or input field with arrows in a table

Hello,

in a table i have a input field width a max width. when i type a long text in this field you can only the first words of the text.

is it possible when i type a long text in this field that the user can see that are more words as the first words. maybe the input field have than an arrow, so that you can navigate from left to right in this input field. i think this feature have a textarea but you can't have a textarea in a table, is it so?!

an alternative is that i create a tooltip for this input field. so when the user goes over the field he see the whole text in a tooltip.

but this solution is only my third alternative.

    Hi markus

    There is no other option. If it is display only then you can use a textview and set the width of the column so that a automatic wrapping of text willt ake place and you can see the entire text. But apart from that nothing else is possible since we have a basic textedit feature missing :(.

    Tooltip is the best way for your solution.
