    I have a textbox with a specific width, I want the text to display and then truncate at the length.   I have set WordWrap, Multiline, and CanGrow to False, but when I programmatically export to PDF, it doesn't show partial words.  Crystal Reports does this.  

    I have the latest 2012 version.

    Hello Peter,

    Since part of words are not usable in most cases the Reporting engine ignores them and only whole words are displayed. The CanGrow property defines if the textbox can become larger in order to display all the text. The Multiline property defines if the textbox has one or more than one lines. The TextWrap property defines if a single line will span on multiple lines if it is wider than the textbox. Currently there is no property that controls if the words will be truncated or not displayed at all.

    Regards,

    Please consider this a suggestion.  There should be option to control whether words are truncated or not.
