How do I limit the number of characters shown when the text is too long?

For the text "Very Long Text Very Very Long" to take the form "Very Long Text ..."

OR text "VeryLongTextVeryVeryLong" to take the form "VeryLongTextV..."

Hello, Serg, 

Generally, you can limit the size of the context menu by setting the DropDown.MaximumSize property. It is necessary to restrict the menu item as well. 

 

        RadContextMenu menu = new RadContextMenu();

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            RadLabelElement lbl = new RadLabelElement();
            lbl.Text = "Very Long Text Very Very Long";
            lbl.TextWrap = false;
            RadMenuItem item = new RadMenuItem();
            item.Children.Add(lbl);
            menu.Items.Add(item);
            item.MaxSize = lbl.MaxSize = new System.Drawing.Size(70,0); 
            menu.DropDown.MaximumSize = new Size(100, 0); 
        }

        private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            menu.Show(MousePosition);
        }

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
