Is there a way to make SimpleResultsTable wrap a field. (field has a very long event message in it, and i'd like to shrink the size of the module width, but not have a right/left scrollbar), rather i'd like to wrap if possible.
Depending on what data you display, a second option would be to install the Sideview Utils app, and forego the SimpleResultsTable all together -- use Sideview's HTML module instead. You won't have to mess with the CSS at that point plus you can really control the layout. For a drill down that would show a very large text string (a huge regex) I actually used the HTML module along with <textarea> tags.
So you could do something like this (table is optional, I just like things to line up):
so you'll probably have to override it to normal at the view level with a CSS file you include in the view XML. (Don't know if you can specify a custom one in Simple XML. If not, and you're using that, then you'll have to override it app-wide in application.css I think.) To be more specific and just do it for one table, I don't know. Sadly, there's no way to push down attributes from modules (e.g., a name or id or class or style) on a visible HTML element as far as I know. You could, I guess, use the cheap and fragile way of finding the object id in a particular view's code and then create a class that applies just to that object. Ugh. By row or column? Make friends with the CSS inspector.
