30 Sep 2022 / 1 minute to read

The clip mode provides options to display its overflow cell content and it can be defined by the columns.clipMode property.

There are three types of clipMode. They are:

  • Clip: Truncates the cell content when it overflows its area.
  • Ellipsis: Displays ellipsis when the cell content overflows its area.
  • EllipsisWithTooltip: Displays ellipsis when the cell content overflows its area, also it will display the tooltip while hover on ellipsis is applied.
