Text Overflow Ellipsis Using Css

The CSS text overflow ellipsis solution is perfect for single line truncations. I use this constantly when building mobile or responsive applications.

                                          span {
    display: block;
    /* because we're using a span class */    white-space: nowrap;
    /* This prevents the content from breaking onto another line */    width: 100%;
    /* this should be the width of your content */    overflow: hidden;
    /* hides the text that is outside of your width */    text-overflow: ellipsis;
    /* creates our ellipsis! */
