Lightning: The 09-Aug-2009 05:09 PST build is out! You are already using it.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.1.3pre) Gecko/20090809 Lightning/1.0pre Shredder/3.0b4pre

It would be nice to get some kind of visual indication in the user interface, if the title of an event shown in the calender view is truncated. Something like an ellipse at the end of the title would be great. Otherwise, the user might confuse two events, which start with the same string. It just happened to me for two all-day events and I accidentally deleted one of them before I realized that it had been different events.

Steps to reproduce:
Add two events on the same day whose title starts with the same string. E.g. "This is an event with a truncated title." and "This is an event which has nothing to do with the other one."

Actual results:
You see two events starting at the same time. You see the (truncated) title "This is an event" for each one. In fact, the events look totally identical. There is no indication, that the title is truncated.

Expected results:
There is an ellipse or something at the end of the truncated title, so that you have a visual indication, that the title is truncated and that these might actually be different events.

Bug 501302 takes care of fixing the event box regressions and might take care of the regression reported here too.

Interestingly, we DO indicate truncated event title with an ellipsis (...) in multi week and month view, so this affects only day and week view. Furthermore, I'd think that this could be easily fixed by just using same code for truncation as in multi week/month view?
Summary: No visual indication in calendar view, if event title is truncated → No visual indication of truncated event titles in calendar day/week view (implement ellipsis..., as in multi week/month view)

Unfortunate, but I think this issue is minor enough that it doesn't block 1.0. I hope that bug 501302 fixes it nevertheless.
