                                  • How can I set a MaxWidth or (Width) on a LayoutItem Label? And make it wrap? Or use TextTrimming, so it just displays "..." at the end as it cannot fit?

                                Hello James,
                                A Label may contain different elements (not only text). To customize text, it is necessary to adjust the TextBlock that is included in the Label.Content property:

                                <dxlc:LayoutItem Name="layoutItem1"> <dxlc:LayoutItem.Label> <TextBlock Text="sdsfdsfsdfsdfdfk" TextWrapping="Wrap" MaxWidth="30"/> </dxlc:LayoutItem.Label> <dxe:TextEdit Name="textEdit1" /> </dxlc:LayoutItem>

                                The best approach to accomplish this task is to customize the LabelTemplate property in a Style for a LayoutItem element. Attached is a sample project that illustrates this approach.

                                  Yeah but I want to do this in a style, so is it the LabelTemplate I want to adjust?

                                  Will the AddColonToLabel and IsRequired properties still work as expected?

                                  Hello James,
                                  No, in this case the AddColonToLabel and IsRequired will have no effect. But I can suggest another way to accomplish this task. You can create an attached property that finds the TextBlock used in a LayoutItemLabel and adjusts the required properties. This property can be set in a LabelStyle. I have created a sample project that demonstrates this approach and updated my answer accordingly.

                                  I addition to my previous comment, there is a better solution to accomplish this task. I suggest that you customize the LabelTemplate property in a Style for a LayoutItem element.

                                  I can't find what the standard LabelTemplate is like? So I don't mess up all it does?

                                  Hello James,
                                  By default, it contains a simple TextBlock. So, you can be sure that with this approach all features will be saved.
