[Terra-text] - `isWordWrapped` property does not wrap long words on IE.

See original GitHub issue

Bug Reportlong ordername truncation


While working on Internet Explorer i have been using terra-text component to wrap my information but i noticed when the resolution of the explorer is reduced the long words does not get wrapped up and text overflows while at the same resolution the same component when loaded on google chrome works fine with text not overflowing.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Set up long texts like (“zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”) or (“amnsjxnweiucnweicnxeixnniwnxuwnxiqnxiqwnx”) in the terra-text control with prop-type isWordWrapped passed.
  2. Now reduce the size of the IE window.
  3. We will notice that the text overflows instead of wrapping up

This issue seems to be not happening on IE 11 as I was able to test the terra-text with large text as shown in screenshot shared below the text was wrapped when isWordWrapped was set.

<Text id="text" isWordWrapped>

I even verified with other examples as well on IE 11. Text was not overflown as shown in the issue. Look at screenshot I think the view holding terra-text is not Modal view. Not sure if we need to consider to include terra-text within IFRAME to see if the overflow happens.
