Overridden smart class parameter name field is too short in the UI
If using parametised classes and you have a parameter with quite a long name it shows fine in the parameter list associated with a host (see ok.png). When you override this parameter an additional box is created at the bottom of the page, the parameter name is shown in a small box with no way to show the full parameter name (see bad.png). Whilst I understand that there should be a box with limited size could we add the full parameter name elsewhere? Maybe in the tooltip for the box? Today the tooltip just says 'Parameter'.

I dont know if this is helpful or not but what we have done internally is dynamically re-write the parameters page with apache (we're not that much of a ruby house) to be a little more usable. We rely quite heavily on overridden parameters so it was quite an important thing for us.
This is how our modified parameters page looks:
Its suits us well, but its currently added in via an apache rewrite. More than happy to provide the code if this is something you are looking to change upstream.
