    resolved [RESOLVED] Disallow <a> from 'breaking' when text-wrapped in browser window

    Hello,

    This will make sense if you just take a look. Two problems:

    1. The <a>'s get split apart when text-wrapped to a new line. I want them intact, like legitimate buttons.

    2. When they text-wrap, they overlap vertically. Maybe just some margin-top?

    Please give me the fix.

    Take a look here, shrink the browser window to see what I mean:
    http://getdtsi.com/dtsi_wop/makeedits.php

    Don't bother clicking the links, you will be kicked out of the program. I just have this page accessible without the password. Here is the CSS I've got for the links:

    Code:
    .topnav a:link, a:visited {
    color: black;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-family: Sans-serif;
    border: 2px solid #555555;
    background: #BBBBBB;
    padding: 3px;
    }
    
    .topnav a:hover, a:active {
    color: grey;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-family: Sans-serif;
    border: 2px solid #555555;
    background: #EEEEEE;
    padding: 3px;
    }
    Thanks again

    I tried wrapping all of the <a>'s in <div>'s to see if it would keep 'em intact. No go.

    Hi there captainscall,

    Have you tried, "min-width"?....

    Code:
    .topnav { 
        min-width:1050px;
     }

    min-width is a step in the right direction and is appreciated, but I would still rather allow the links to wrap up with the shrinking window, just keep them intact

    A way to stop text from wrapping at a certain point is to use &nbsp; (a non-breaking space) instead of a space.

    <head>
    
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    
    <title>DTSIwop - Editing Work Order</title>
    
    <style>
    body {
        font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;
     }
    .topnav {
        margin:0 0 10px;
        padding:0;
        list-style-type:none;
     }
    .topnav li {
        display:inline-block;
        padding-right:3px;
        margin-bottom:4px;
     }
    .topnav a{
        display:inline-block;
        margin-right:3px;
     }
    .topnav a:link, .topnav a:visited {
        color: black;
        text-decoration: none;
        font-weight: bold;
        font-family: Sans-serif;
        border: 2px solid #555;
        background: #bbb;
        padding: 3px;
        height: auto;
     }

        border:2px solid #555;
        background: #eee;
        padding: 3px;
        height: auto;
     }
    body.edit a#edit, body.edit a:visited#edit {
        border:4px solid red; 
     }
    </style>
    
    </head>
    <body class="edit">
    
    <ul class="topnav">
     <li><a id="create" href="create.php">Create Work Order</a>-</li> 
     <li><a id="edit" href="edit.php">Edit/View Work Order</a>-</li>

     <li><a href="/dtsi_wop">Main Menu Page</a>-</li> 
     <li><a href="index.php?logout=go">Log out</a></li> 
    </ul>
    
    <hr>No work order selected...
    
    </body>
    </html>

    coothead -- excellence. That's the fix. <li>'s are more 'workable' than simply <a>'s.

    Thanks
