Handling card overflow text

Issue

I have this card container to display some text that is overflowing

enter image description here

I need the text to be wrapped inside the card container and the container to adjust it height to show all wrapped text.

I already tried to use options like overflow-wrap, word-wrap, white-space without success, the text will not break and fill the below white space.

The card is a mat-card from the Angular Material library.

EDIT: html code of the component

<mat-card>

    <mat-card-content>
        <mat-list>
            <mat-list-item>
                <mat-icon matListIcon>tag</mat-icon>
                <p matLine> <b> ID </b> </p>
                <p matLine>
                    <span matLine> id </span>
                </p>
            </mat-list-item>

            <mat-list-item>
                <mat-icon matListIcon>edit_attributes</mat-icon>
                <p matLine> <b>TYPE</b> </p>
                <p matLine>
                    <span> type </span>
                </p>

EDIT2:

Using

span {
  word-break: break-all;
  border: 1px solid red;
  display: inline-block;
}

will not help as it won’t break the long text line

enter image description here

The solution here will break the spacings

Solution

word-break: break-all will handle that:

span {
  word-break: break-all;
  border: 1px solid red;
}
