Can I force a newline in the column header (DMI)

The column headers are sometimes takeing up Space on the screen and the value in the column are normally one a short value:

Are there any special character I can use ín an alias name that will force a newline between 'Application' and 'performance'?




I am not aware of any, but the question is - why would you want to do that? If there is not enough space for your table - the web browser will automatically "wrap" this header title into two lines.

See examples of the Applications report below.

Yes, we are aware of the word wrap, but the customer would like to be able to control this themselv. Make the reports visually nicer.

If you force a newline by editing Table Header Alias you result in new row of the header.

If first row(s) are identical in adjacent columns it is useful for getting off redundant elements from the header... See enclosed example and howtodos...

This is how it would look like with adding new line just to a single header.

Answering question: further combinations is possible like on example below

Yes, new lines are used to make multi level headers. That's why I said I don't know a way to force a break in the header, which wouldn't make it a multi level header.
