Error description

  • In ClearQuest Web 8, when running a dynamic query, the text 'The
    current field is set to:' pertaining to the filter field
    selection, is not contained within the box as it should.
    
    When selecting multiple values the blue text can overlap the
    controls below the box and/or the scrollbars, making them
    inaccessible.
    
    Environment:
    IE8
    
    Also:
    German IE 8 shows the box title overlapping the operator type
    because the German text takes two lines:
      Das aktuelle Feld ist wie folgt
      konfiguriert
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Use the DefectTracking SAMPLE user database.
    2) Create 30 or more Project records.
    3) Create a query on the Defect record type.
    4) Select Dynamic filter: on the Project field.
    5) Click Run query: Select values: Add All.
    
    Result:
    The filter definition is not formatted correctly. If many values
    with no spaces are included they don't wrap and the line becomes
    endless in length.
