I'm pretty sure pyvcp can not wrap text. I know GladeVCP can.

Can you show me the full syntax of the label you make with wraplength?

<label>
<wraplength>"250"</wraplength>
<justify>"left"</justify>
<text>"To program: Move to desired position, push Program, then push Custom 'x' button, then push Program to run"</text>
<font>(Helvetica",10)</font>
</label>

This worked on button text as well.

Hi Dave.
What you discovered is amazing !
Is it really working with the existing pyVCP widgets (label,button as you told) or do you have a modified version ?

It is working with labels and buttons. Attached is a screenshot of using it for a label. Glad that I could finally contribute something instead of always wanting.

We need to get this information into the PYVCP documentation. I was wondering how to do this and was lucky to find this post.
I did a search on MULTI LINE with no results.

I don't recall seeing the <wraplength> or the <justify> modifiers in there.
I found that not only can you have <bg>#000000</bg> to specify a background color... but also that <fg>#ffffff</fg> works to allow specification of a foreground color.

Now I am wondering if there are other modifiers??? (Time to go play I suppose.) ;)

I also cannot get <multilabel> to work... but i am going to start a new thread on it if I can't results as that is a different topic.
