Gavin King commented on JBSEAM-1027:

Yeah, that would be really nice. If you just want it to be done with pure client-side js, rather than some kind of Ajax request (I think that would be fine), it seems to be more of a Seam kind of thing than a richfaces kind of thing.

> A nice Javascript component would be a substring display component that expands the string on click. For example, in a datatable column there is only 20 characters space reserved for a particular column. If my data is longer than that, I'd like to show the first 20 characters and allow the user to display/expand the string on click, e.g. "This is a very long varchar that doesn't fit into ...". If the user clicks on "...", either a DHTML layer pops up with the full string or the datatable is actually widened to make room for the full string.
