Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public bool AutoEllipsis { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

Set AutoEllipsis to true to display text that extends beyond the width of the control when the user passes over the control with the mouse. You must set the control's AutoSize property to false if you want AutoEllipsis to be true. If AutoSize is true, the control will grow to fit the text and an ellipsis will not appear.
