I would like to have more than one line of text on a button.
I simply want more height and less width on my buttons,
but I can't figure out how to make the button text wrap down to the second line. EX:

I want :

-------------------
|    Button   |
|        #1     |
-------------------

not:
---------------------------
|    Button  #1     |
---------------------------

Thanks.

What about centering the text?

There is no way to center justify the text, but if you use BS_CENTER style and put '\n' characters in the caption wherever you want to break the line, you will get a centered block on the button that is left justified.
