# wx.grid.GridFitMode¶

Allows to specify the behaviour when the cell contents doesn’t fit into its allotted space.

Objects of this class are used with wx.grid.GridCellAttr.SetFitMode and wx.grid.Grid.SetDefaultCellFitMode and wx.grid.Grid.SetCellFitMode functions and allow to specify what should happen if the cell contents doesn’t fit into the available space. The possibilities are:

• Overflow into the cell to the right if it is empty, or possibly several cells, if the cell contents still doesn’t fit after overflowing into the immediately neighbouring cell.

• Clip the cell contents, discarding the part which doesn’t fit.

• Ellipsize the cell contents, i.e. replace the non-fitting part with ellipsis (

The default behaviour is to overflow, use wx.grid.Grid.SetDefaultCellFitMode to change this, for example:

grid.SetDefaultCellFitMode(wx.grid.GridFitMode.Clip())


Objects of this class are created using static functions instead of constructors for better readability and can’t be changed after creating them except by using the assignment operator.

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.4.

## Methods Summary¶

 __init__ Default constructor creates an object not specifying any behaviour. Clip Pseudo-constructor for object specifying clipping behaviour. Ellipsize Pseudo-constructor for object specifying ellipsize behaviour. GetEllipsizeMode Return ellipsize mode, possibly ELLIPSIZE_NONE . IsClip Return True if the object specifies clipping behaviour. IsOverflow Return True if the object specifies overflow behaviour. IsSpecified Return True if the object specifies some particular behaviour. Overflow Pseudo-constructor for object specifying overflow behaviour.

## Class API¶

class wx.grid.GridFitMode(object)

Possible constructors:

GridFitMode()


Allows to specify the behaviour when the cell contents doesn’t fit into its allotted space.

### Methods¶

__init__(self)

Default constructor creates an object not specifying any behaviour.

This constructor is not very useful, use static methods Clip and Overflow below to create objects of this class instead.

static Clip()

Pseudo-constructor for object specifying clipping behaviour.

Return type

wx.grid.GridFitMode

static Ellipsize(ellipsize=ELLIPSIZE_END)

Pseudo-constructor for object specifying ellipsize behaviour.

Parameters

ellipsize (EllipsizeMode) –

Return type

wx.grid.GridFitMode

GetEllipsizeMode(self)

Return ellipsize mode, possibly ELLIPSIZE_NONE .

For the objects constructed using Ellipsize , the same ellipsization mode as was passed to it is returned. For all the other objects, ELLIPSIZE_NONE is.

Return type

wx.EllipsizeMode

IsClip(self)

Return True if the object specifies clipping behaviour.

This method returns True only for the objects returned by Clip .

Return type

bool

IsOverflow(self)

Return True if the object specifies overflow behaviour.

This method returns True only for the objects returned by Overflow .

Return type

bool

IsSpecified(self)

Return True if the object specifies some particular behaviour.

This method returns False for default-constructed objects of this type only.

Return type

bool

static Overflow()

Pseudo-constructor for object specifying overflow behaviour.

Return type

wx.grid.GridFitMode
