    Steps to Reproduce:
    
    - Run DXL to show a listView contianing more than 259 characters
    - Now resize column so as to view all the characters in the
    first column.

    irrespective of the length of the original text. No ellipsis to
    indicate missing text either.
    
    This also affects DOORS in built windows , Example entire suffix
    is not shown in 'View Baselines' window.

Problem conclusion

  • Since MS have accepted this as a limitation of the rich edit
    control, changes have been made in DOORS to show tooltips for
    such items as cannot fit in the available width of the
    list-view's column.
    

Temporary fix

  • There is no workaround for this issue
