To wrap text to fit the screen in d3.js, you can set the "textLength" attribute of the text element to a specific width and use the "lengthAdjust" attribute set to "spacingAndGlyphs". This will automatically adjust the text to wrap within the specified width.


Here's an example of how you can do this in d3.js:

1

var svg = d3.select("svg");

var text = svg.append("text")
    .attr("x", 10)
    .attr("y", 20)
    .text("Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.")
    .attr("textLength", 200)
    .attr("lengthAdjust", "spacingAndGlyphs");


In this example, the text will be wrapped to fit within a width of 200 units. You can adjust the "textLength" attribute to fit your specific screen size and layout requirements.


Additionally, you can use other methods to handle text wrapping in d3.js such as manually splitting the text into multiple lines or using a library like d3plus-text that provides more advanced text wrapping functionalities.
