Property Value

true if the additional label text is to be indicated by an ellipsis; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Set AutoEllipsis to true to display text that extends beyond the width of the Label when the user passes over the control with the mouse. If AutoSize is true, the label will grow to fit the text and an ellipsis will not appear.
