I have a number of fields in my UI that could be quite long. Typically this is a location field. Right now I put an ellipsis in the field, but sometimes the user needs to see the entire string. The design initially used marquees (shudder) but I feel there must be a better way to do this.
Some options I have thought of:
- Tooltip on hover. The tooltips could end up quite large though, and what about tablet?)
- Marquee on hover, not ideal but possibly not terrible? Not great for tablet either.
- Show a better shortened data.
27 Packman Drive, LE11 0TZmay give more information and thus negate the need for ellipsis? Hard to ensure string length is short enough though.
