You should insert in OnMouseDown event of label code that will divide Y by (label.font.size+distance_between_lines).
sorry, I would write the code ,but i don't know how to find the distance_between_lines.

What is static text control? Is it a memo (since you mentioned "line")?

static text control is alomost like label(It's on the additional page of the vcl(at least in D3)). However I didn't find the option for wordwrap in this control, so I suppose skel meant label
