enter image description hereIn a table with clickable rows (a click on each row opens the dedicated page), the text could be truncated if it's too long. We thought to add a tooltip with the complete text on hover, but our app can be used on both desktop and tablet.

How might we display truncated text in a clickable table on a touch screen?

  • Can you share a minimal sketch or screenshot of your table? I'm worried I can't imagine your table correctly.

You can provide an icon on the row (or specific cell) that users can click to see the full text either in an expanded row or in a separate pop-up.
