No, there is no option for wordwrap in Label.
But,try setting the size of the Label and give the label string more than the size. Then it may help. Let me know.

As far as I know this is not possible. If you need multi-line Label, define a subclass of Panel and set its LayoutManager to new GridLayout(0, 1) and add a Label for each line.

Hi,

    I think there is no direct method available for that.
Anyhow, try this link

Hi,
 
   instead of using the Label, use the TextArea and set the background and foreground property by getting it from the container.

 for eg,

  JPanel pnl = new JPanel() ;
  JTextArea ta = new JtextArea() ;

  ta.setBackground( pnl.getBackground() ) ;

 like this set the foregroung property too. So ti will look like a label.Or use the drawString() method of the graphics class. I have implemented this ideas in my app.

thank u
siva
