auto row height resize

When I select and display a long sentences from database, it will not display fully on datagrid. It will be truncated. Is there a way to make the sentence flow to the next line with its height automatically increased?

I am also looking for other alternative to this problem. For example, clicked on the truncated sentence and pop an alert with full sentence.

By modifying the sample at /grid/ to this...
<script>
    obj.setAction("click", function(src){alert(src.getProperty("item/text"))});
</script>


Although I tend to find the alert method a bit intrusive so I would place the sentence into a div that's visible some where on the page.

<script>
    obj.setAction("click", function(src){getElementById("fullsentence").innerText=src.getProperty("item/text")});
</script>

Another solution could be a multiline tooltip applyed to every "cell" as someone suggest at this forum.

Thank you! The code

<script>
obj.setAction("click", function(src){alert(src.getProperty("item/text"))});
</script>

works like charm. I really appreciate your help :)

I chose to make a dhtml popup window to display the larger data, activated by clicking on a link in the grid.
