Maintain the Size and Content of Data-Bound Controls
Use the control's Can Grow and Can Shrink properties to make a data-bound control automatically adjust its height to its contents.
|Can Grow = No||Can Grow = Yes|
|Can Shrink = No||Can Shrink = Yes|
This feature does not work with anchoring enabled, as well as for labels that are used to display summary function results.
Use the Auto Width property to make a data-bound Label or Character Comb automatically adjust its width to its content. This option behavior depends on the control's current horizontal alignment (Text Alignmentproperty value).
- Text Alignment = Left
- Text Alignment = Right
- Text Alignment = Center
The control's Word Wrap property allows you to make a control display its contents in multiple lines when it does not fit into the control's dimensions.
|Auto Width = No, Word Wrap = No||Auto Width = No, Word Wrap = Yes|
|Auto Width = Yes, Word Wrap = No||Auto Width = Yes, Word Wrap = Yes|
You can also use the opposite Text Fit Mode property to adjust a label or table cell's font size to fit the control's bounds.
|Text Fit Mode = None||Text Fit Mode = Grow Only||Text Fit Mode = Shrink Only||Text Fit Mode = Shrink And Grow|
This property is not available in the following cases:
- The Can Grow, Can Shrink or Auto Width option is enabled;
- The label's Angle property is specified;
- The control's Anchor Horizontally or Anchor Vertically property is set to Both.
