    Further from a Services person who looked at this:  
    This is NOT a bug:

     

    http://caforums.ca.com/ca/board/message?board.id=CAClarityGeneralDiscussion&thread.id=2730

     

     

    issue is that the trial text has no
    spaces in it

    1111111111111111111111122222222222222222222222222233333333333333333333444444444444444444444455555555555555555555

    does not wrap very well (in anything)

    I disagree.  Even if that test text was;  "1111111111 2222222222 3333333333 4444444444 55555555555 66666666666 777777777777 8888888888888 99999999999" etc  (i.e. with spaces), then you would get the same result.  The issue is that the "READ ONLY" view of the attribute does not respect the "Text Area" setting at all.  Senthil - change the contents of you field and bounce this is support com eback to you with that arguament.  But hey, this is not my support call!   ;-)  Dave.

    Services can always be wrong.   I would log it with Support and let them decide:)

    The short answer to the original question is: No.  When a text attribute is unlocked it is  part of a   within a textarea  ; and when the page is saved the content of the textarea posted back to the database.  When a text attribute is locked it is pat of a table cell only, i.e. shown on screen only and not part of the    ; and when  page is saved not posted back to server.  Now. The "presentation layer" is performed by the browser (not Clarity). When unlocked the browser contains the text within the textarea and applies rendering rules of a textarea (this form control allows for width and height and scrolling). When locked the browser contains the text in a table cell (subject to .css frmatting) and renders the text according to these standards (without width, height, scrolling).  This is "as designed" - no question.  In addition the example screenshot uses many 1's + many 2's etc without spaces. This won't wrap because the browser rendering cannot find spaces to wrap at.  You may go ahead with a case, but it isn't a bug.

    I should add here that I agree it IS frustrating that some critical  formatting of text is lost when an attribute is locked. For example a textarea control will produce new lines if a carriage retrun or line feed exists in the text (this is a browser feature) but when that same text is displayed within tags the line breaks are ignored (this is a 'feature' of html).  If you do open a case perhaps you might consider using it to launch an enhancement request?      save the follwing to 'example.html' and open in your browser      Loss of formatting example 







    textarea cols=40
    td width=160



    long string |
    with carriage retun immediately after |
    in each row

    long string |
    with carriage retun immediately after |
    in each row
