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.
