Truncating text with vGrid property

Sorry, my previous post was incomplete.

Have you set the cell editing of the table to true? I.e.
cRevTable["celledit"] = true? If so, the text should be truncated.

Additionally, you seem to have to set the locktext to true to 
have the columns truncated, but it only works after you edit the 
text and then not always/immediately.
