This may put you on the right path. In the BeforeShow event of the label:

global $var;
$var=$Component->GetValue();
if (strlen($var)>160){
$Component->SetValue(substr($Component->GetValue(),1, 10)."....");
}

Thanks Saseow , works perfect .

global $var;
$var=$Component->GetValue();
if (strlen($var)>160){
$Component->SetValue(substr($Component->GetValue(),0, 160)."....");
}

Returns 157 characters

Keep them from ever having the opportunity of entering more than 160
characters on the client-side. See
