I'm trying to figure out how to set "word wrap" to be true for a uitable on a particular cell. I have access to the underlying java object (thanks to Yair Altman's findjobj function) and have been able to figure out how to set the height of the uitable cell using the java object, but am not sure how to get the cells to word wrap.
Any ideas on how to do that??
Clarification on what I mean when I say word wrap

I tried this, but it did not work
import com.jidesoft.grid.*
jscroll = findjobj(table_4);
jtable = jscroll.getViewport.getView;

Actually - turns out.....if you add HTML tags into your UITABLE - it will do word wrap automatically. Fun times! :)

what do you mean by HTML tags? do you have a sample code?

mywords = {'<HTML>This is a longer phrase that should wrap'; 'But this one which does not have the tag, should not wrap' };
uicontrol('Data', mywords)
