Test Case

**Overview:**

   When the message text string is too long to fit in the alert, it is not scrolling and is instead cut off.

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Run the attached sample.

**Actual Results:**

   The string is cut off. You should see "- End" at the end of the string. 

**Expected Results:**

   The text should scroll if its too long. That is the normal behavior of an iOS UIAlertView.

**Build Date & Platform:**

   1.2.3-pre4

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce it. I have checked that DisplayAlert text is scrolling in Android but not working in iOS.
