I have a label where the caption is populated when the form is opened.  Is it possible to turn off of the text wrap on the label?

example:

If the label was the width of 8 letters and I was going to put the caption as "Hello World"

Only "Hello Wo" would be displayed.

Have you tried sizing the label vertically so that it will only show one line?

This seems to work for me.

The problem is that I have carriage returns in the caption.

It is the size of 3 lines worth of text.

"If the label was the width of 8 letters"

Of course, that is determined by the Font being used.

"The problem is that I have carriage returns in the caption.  "

Is that good or bad?  

So, you are saying that you would want "Hello World" to appear as "Hello Wo" ?

Not quite sure what you need ?

You could limit the length of the caption in code - would that work?

Here is the general idea - don't know what you have for code so far ?

PRivate Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)

 '  some code

Dim sMyCaption
sMyCaption = "Hello World"

If Len(myCaption)> 8 Then myCaption = Left(myCaption,8)   ' This is the main thing here

' More code

End Sub

That makes sense.  

No the carriage returns need to be there.

Thanks for your help,
