When setting a maximum width, i.e. textWidthMax > 0, a longer multi-line text can be issued as continuous text with automatic word wraparound. The height of the text block can be controlled by the argument textHeightMax. Texts which do not completely fit into the area predefined by textWidthMax and textHeightMax will be shortened according to the setting by the argument ellipsisPosition. 5 options are available:

ellipsisPosition Truncation Ellipsis
0 end (No ellipsis)
1 begin ...text
2 middle text...text
3 end text... (Default)
4 begin + end ...text...

As the default, textWidthMax =​ –1 and textHeightMax =​ –1 are set, i.e. no width and height constraints and, thus, no automatic word wraparound support.
