Property

GtkLabel:ellipsize

Declaration

property ellipsize: Pango.EllipsizeMode [ read, write ]

Description [src]

The preferred place to ellipsize the string, if the label does not have enough room to display the entire string.

Note that setting this property to a value other than PANGO_ELLIPSIZE_NONE has the side-effect that the label requests only enough space to display the ellipsis “…”. In particular, this means that ellipsizing labels do not work well in notebook tabs, unless the GtkNotebookPage:tab-expand child property is set to TRUE. Other ways to set a label’s width are gtk_widget_set_size_request() and gtk_label_set_width_chars().
