How to ensure lane header text appears on a single line


See the attached screenshot for an example of my challenge.
Even though the lane height is more than adequate to allow the text to fit on a single line, the text wraps to a second line.

I would assume that the label within the lane header would grow in width as the lane is resized.
Is this not true?

How would you suggest that I accomplish what I am looking to do - get the text on a single line (with the ability for the text to wrap to a second line should the lane height necessitate it).

Thanks for any guidance.

Hi Jim

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Please note that the default value for the swimlane header width is 30, so that the header text is not wrapped properly. We suggest you to increase the width value for the swimlane header in order to achieve your requirement. Please refer the code snippet below.

Code snippet:

Lane swimLane = new Lane();

 swimLane.Name = "swimlane";

 swimLane.Header.Text = "";

 //set the width for the header
swimLane.Header.Width = 120;

Please let me know if any concerns.

Hi Shyam,

This does not seem to work.
See the attached screenshot.
The vertical lane seems to be fine; just the horzontal.

Here's a snippet of code from my nodeCollectioChangeHandler:

... } else if (args.changeType == "insert" && args.element && args.element.isLane) {
                var lane = args.element;
                if (lane.orientation == "horizontal") {
                    lane.minHeight = 120;
                    lane.minWidth = 550;
                    lane.header.width = 110; // Ensure a wider label so it doesn't wrap (default = 30)
                    lane.header.height = 40;
                    lane.header.fontSize = 12;
                if (lane.orientation == "vertical") {
                    lane.minHeight = 550;
                    lane.minWidth = 250;
                    lane.header.width = 240; // Ensure a wider label so it doesn't wrap (default = 30)
                    lane.header.height = 40;
                    lane.header.fontSize = 12;
                diagram.updateNode(lane.name, {});
            } else if ...

If a interrogate the lane.header.width in the selectionChangeHandler (when I click on it) - it shows 60 ???

What am I doing wrong?
