We are changing all of our standard WinForms labels to RadLabels. This has been working fine until today when we ran into a label that used the AutoEllipsis property.

Does the RadLabel have something similar to the WinForms AutoEllipsis on a label?

If not, is there a work around?

Hi Deborah,

Thank you for the question.

In order to use the AutoEllipsis functionality of RadLabel, you should set the following properties:
this.radLabel1.AutoSize = false;
this.radLabel1.TextWrap = false;

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
Nikolay

OK. We will have to leave this as a WinForm Label then.

I am displaying a remark that might be very long. We have space for four lines in the label and want the field to wrap. We only want the ellipsis if the field does not fit into the four lines.

The WinForm TextBox does not require turning off text wrap to get the ellipsis. So we can display the remark on multiple lines. Only if the remark does not fit on those multiple lines do we get an ellipsis.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Deborah,

Thank you for your feedback.

Generally, we are trying to follow the behavior of Microsoft Label, but indeed there are some differences between our TextDrawing and MS TextDrawing. If more customers request the functionality that you have requested, we may consider introducing it in one of our next releases.

All the best,

Peter
