How to get a label control to wrap text?

I have an ASP.Net app that displays HTML in a label control.

However, when a line of text is too long, it goes all the way to the right and you have to use the bottom scrollbar to see it all.

Is there a way to get it to wrap the text? If so, how? Or, must I insert <BR> characters at predetermined points in the string, say every 80 characters or whatever?

Because the label gets rendered as HTML , the only way will be by inserting <BR>

I would put the text between <p></p> tags that should auto wrap.


lable.text="<p>" & text & "</p>

that should do it
