Is this a bug or am I missing something? Use a dropdownlist in your an application.
For the dataprovider use something like the following.
(Yes the above are weird but we have our reasons)
Then use width=90 and truncate=1 on the simpleText in the an itemrenderer and/or the dropdownlistbuttonskin.
The truncation appears to be in random spots like so
Shouldn't they go to at least a width=90 before truncating?
