Description Jay Dobies 2009-06-15 18:55:13 UTC
Description of problem:
When fixing 501933, I made the readonly textarea of the script on the confirmation page not wrap so as to not confuse the script writer. I think the textarea for the input page should be set to not wrap as well. Wrapping can make the script read incorrectly and look as if commands are separated onto multiple lines when in reality they are not.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to SSM > Provisioning > Remote Command
2. Enter a script with a very long line. The line will wrap.
Actual results:
Line of the script wraps, appearing to be multiple lines.

Expected results:
My opinion is that the textarea should scroll to show the full width of the line without wrapping it.

Additional info:
If this is determined to not be the desired behavior, the fix for 501933 should probably be changed to remove the wrap="off" attribute for consistency between the editing page and the confirmation page.

Not in Vader/5.3.


Added "wrap" option to textarea widget. Set to off for remote command script editing page.
