Property Value

Type Description

A String value that specifies the label’s text.


If the LabelControl.AllowHtmlString property is set to true, you can use HTML tags to format the Text. For detailed information, see HTML Text Formatting.


Long words are not wrapped if the Text option is enabled.


The following example shows how to format a LabelControl‘s text using HTML tags. HTML formatting is enabled via the LabelControl.AllowHtmlString property. To respond to an end-user clicking the hyperlink, the LabelControl.HyperlinkClick event is handled. The image below shows the result:


labelControl1.Text = "<size=14>Size = 14<br>" +
                     "<b>Bold</b> <i>Italic</i> <u>Underline</u><br>" + 
                     "<size=11>Size = 11<br>" + 
                     "<color=255, 0, 0>Sample Text</color></size>" +
labelControl1.AllowHtmlString = true;
labelControl1.Appearance.TextOptions.WordWrap = DevExpress.Utils.WordWrap.Wrap;
labelControl1.Appearance.Options.UseTextOptions = true;
labelControl1.AutoSizeMode = DevExpress.XtraEditors.LabelAutoSizeMode.Vertical;

private void labelControl1_HyperlinkClick(object sender, DevExpress.Utils.HyperlinkClickEventArgs e) {
