Wrap Text option is missing from a Text Input within a Dynamic Layout.  Is this by design or a bug ?

I am trying to wrap the content of a read only Text Input within a dynamic layout but the option is not present.  When I create the same read only Text Input within a repeating grid or a free form layout, on the presentation properties I have the option to wrap the text (see attachments).

Therefore which of the following statement is true ?

  • Wrap Text been disabled within dynamic layouts by design
  • Wrap Text is configured in an alternative manner within dynamic layouts
  • The Wrap Text option should work within dynamic layouts and this is a bug that needs to be reported

Note: This is Pega 7.1.7

The use case I have is that I have a property then needs to respond differently depending on the state, to implement this I have a Text Input for each state within a dynamic layout whose visibility is controlled by when rules that ensure only one is displayed at a time.  The only issue with this is that I can't find a way to enable text wrapping.

Internal Execute an activity to retrieve content
Not Available No link / Action available

Paul, does the text in the dynamic layout get truncated at some point?

Hi David,

I've tried with up to 200 characters which will traverse a user's screen and that neither truncates or wraps.

Ideally I'm looking for the interface to wrap at around 25-30 chars as most entries for the field will be less than that.

I have just checked the visibility condition on the wraptext checkbox. We are restricting this only to freeform layouts for textInput. I will further investigate and try to come up with the reason behind this.
