Autoheight Label

I have created a table where the text changes when clicked but if I have a really long sentence like below, it automatically adds an ellipses and I can't figure out where to put the autoheight text code to make it work. The code I am using is below

var win = Titanium.UI.currentWindow;

// create table view data
var data = [
{title:'This is the longest possible title you can do', title1: 'This is the longest possible title you can do', title2: 'Text Changing'},

var search = Titanium.UI.createSearchBar({

var tableView = Titanium.UI.createTableView({data:data, search:search, filterAttribute:'title'});
    if(e.rowData.title == e.rowData.title1)    {
        e.row.title = e.rowData.title2;

   } else if(e.rowData.title == e.rowData.title2)    {        
        e.row.title = e.rowData.title1;

  • I also had some problems with autohight and figured that it works best to just remove the label and create a new one with the new text. Works for me.

    • This is what i've been stuck doing too.. Hardly best practice. Would love some info on a workaround.
