I have tried them all and the conclusion is that the ItemStyle nowrap should really affect the TD and not the TR of a table created by a datagrid object. If a TR has more than one TD, the wrap does not take effect. ANyone know of a work around? Keep in mind that I must use "create columns at runtime" per our developer lead. I had considered looping thru all cells and replacing spaces with non-breaking space as this would work, but may not work in an excel download of said grid. thanks!
