LTEXT Control

LTEXT control

Defines a left-aligned text control. The control is a simple rectangle displaying the given text left-aligned in the rectangle. The text is formatted before it is displayed. Words that would extend past the end of a line are automatically wrapped to the beginning of the next line. Words that are longer than the width of the control are truncated.

The LTEXT statement, which can be used only in a DIALOGEX statement, defines the text, identifier, dimensions, and attributes of the control.

LTEXT text, id, x, y, width, height [, style [, extended-style]]


Control styles. This value can be any combination of the BS_RADIOBUTTON style and the following styles: SS_LEFT, WS_TABSTOP, and WS_GROUP.

If you do not specify a style, the default style is SS_LEFT | WS_GROUP.

For more information about the general syntax of a control statement, see Common Control Parameters.


This example defines a left-aligned text control that is labeled Filename:

LTEXT "Filename", 101, 10, 10, 100, 100
