Wrap text of width fixed column


So I have my grid with fixed width columns but if the text inside the cells is too long I want it to be wrap into 2 lines. By default it will just short the text and add '...' at the end.

There is some config I'm missing to set that?

Hi Ezequiel,

We suspect that you set the Text.overflow property as TextOverflow.ellipsis for the row cell in the buildRow method. You can achieve your requirement by removing Text.overflow from the Text widget. Also, you can set how many lines of text should be wrapped using the Text.maxLines. We have prepared a sample for that. Please check the following sample and code snippet.

class EmployeeDataGridSource extends DataGridSource {




  DataGridRowAdapter buildRow(DataGridRow row) {

    return DataGridRowAdapter(

        cells: row.getCells().map<Widget>((DataGridCell dataCell) {

      return Container(

        padding: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 8.0),

        alignment: Alignment.centerLeft,

        child: Text(
