Word hyphenation with Label




Is it possible to have hyphenation (“words split”) with Labels if there is no room to display text on screen ?

Do I need to develop a custom widget ?

Thank you.


Hi @cgorand,

You have two choices:

  • Using the ComplexTextManager as a style of your Label [1]
  • Creating your own Label widget and using TextHelper to split texts on spaces [2]

If you have simple needs the first solution is the easiest.

You can also look at the Widget demo example for line wrap [1] - see screenshot below.
