Forget the code in that last post, Paint.TrimText() does a lot more than

Try this function, it can return the trimmed text using Paint.TrimText
and/or update the label...

Public Sub TrimLabelText(hLabel As Label, Optional UpdadeLabel As Boolean)
As String

  Dim sText As String

  Dim i As New Image(5, 5) ' make a dummy image to use Paint.class on
  Paint.Font = hLabel.Font
  sText = Paint.TrimText(hLabel.Text, hLabel.Width, hLabel.Height)
  i = Null
  If UpdadeLabel And If sText <> hLabel.Text Then hLabel.Text = sText
  Return sText
