I have a div with a fixed height and want to display a view field. When the content overflows the div, I'd like an elipsis to click for more.
CSS can handle overflow and hide it (and overflow-text can handle a single line) but I have to estimate everyting for number of lines since words can be an arbitrary length. Sure views with or without the smart trim module can handle words or characters, but I need to estimate the number of lines or, ideally, I'd like the trim based on the max-height of a div.
The Smart Trim maintainer suggested a CSS library which may help but does not solve the problem.
I imagine that views text overflow based on height is a common problem.
