Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have column (Job Beschreibung) in a table, in which one need to write text. Unfortunately, the written text appears in one line without breaks so that one's to scroll horizontally (see attached image). anyone of any help and advice how to fix this issue.

I attache the code also.

<form method="post">
<div class="row space30"> <!-- row 2 begins -->
	<div  class="col-md-12 text-center">
	  <?php
	
	$userCity = $objUser->getJobByLocation();
	?>
	<select name="search[location]" style="min-width: 150px;padding: 3px;margin-right:25px;">
	<option value="">Kanton auswählen</option>
	<?php
	if(!empty($userCity)) {
	foreach($userCity as $k=>$v) {
	?>
	<option value="<?php echo $userCity[$k]["location"]; ?>" <?php if($userCity[$k]["location"] == $location) { echo "selected"; } ?>><?php echo $userCity[$k]["location"]; ?></option>
	<?php
	}
	}
	?>
	</select>
	<?php
	$userOccupation = $objUser->getQualification();
	?>
	<select name="search[Jqualify]" style="min-width: 150px;padding: 3px;">
	<option value="">Beruf auswählen</option>
	<?php
	if(!empty($userOccupation)) {
	foreach($userOccupation as $k=>$v) {
	?>
	<option value="<?php echo $userOccupation[$k]["Jqualify"]; ?>" <?php if($userOccupation[$k]["Jqualify"] == $Jqualify) { echo "selected"; } ?>><?php echo $userOccupation[$k]["Jqualify"]; ?></option>
	<?php
	}
	}
	?>
	</select>
	<input type="submit" name="go" value="Search" style="border-color: none;border: 2px outset buttonface;padding: 2px 45px;margin-left: 20px;" >
	<input type="reset" value="Reset" style="border-color: none;border: 2px outset buttonface;padding: 2px 45px;margin-left: 10px;" onclick="window.location='jobs.php'">
	</div>
</div>
<?php
if(!empty($userList)) {
?>
      	<div class="row space5"> <!-- row 3 begins -->
		<div  class="col-md-12">
            <table class="table table-striped">
			<tr>

<?php

    foreach($userList as $i => $value) {
		if(is_numeric($i)) {
?>
<tr>
    <td><?php echo $userList[$i]["comp_name"]; ?></td>
	<td><?php echo $userList[$i]["jobtitle"]; ?></td>
    <td><?php echo $userList[$i]["job_description"]; ?></td>
    <td><?php echo $userList[$i]["minexp"]; ?> - <?php echo $userList[$i]["maxexp"]; ?></td>

</tr>
<?php

	}//for close
?>
		</table>

to the line

td><?php echo nl2br($userList[$i]["job_description"]); ?></td>

Hello boompa,  unfortunately didn't work either.

as per your link, it should be a string in the function. I could know how to add this in your function.

 

I inserted it in the function in the following way, is this right


<?php

$newtext = wordwrap($userList[$i]["job_description", 20, "<br />\n");

echo $newtext;
?>

When you declare your table, add specific col widths to it so that the format isn't determined by the browser.  Look up the <col> tag

Strange?  What happened when you set your column widths as I suggested?

You can try using  chunck_split() something like $string = chunk_split($string, '128', '<br />'); This worked on a large string I randomly generated.

 

 The reason that the nl2br() method doesn't work for you is because there are no new lines (\r\n) in your string. nl2br() converts those new line characters to <br /> tags. If there are going to be new lines in your text you can use the nl2br().

 

You can use the word-wrap function as well. If it's going to be one long word like all of your a's you would want to set the optional Boolean at the end to true to cut a word at the breaking point, otherwise it's going to wait till the end of the word to add the <br /> character into it... So in your case of all the A's it'll add it in after the last "a" doing a whole lot of nothing for you.

Hi guys,

problem solved,

 

thanks a lot for all of you, as your adds were very helpful.

Valando was right because  my test text hadn't any break therefore was taken as one word.

 

again thanks so much
