Description eb1 2014-09-18 17:54:10 UTC
Under certain circumstances the button text gets truncated instead of wrapped. If it is a few characters shorter or longer it wraps as expected.

The attached sample program demonstrates the problem: Run the application, type "Button text is w". Notice how the button only shows "Button text is". Now type "Button text is wr". Notice how the "wr" shows and is wrapped to the next line.

Sample program that demonstrates the problem

When running the sample program you can type some text which will show up as button text. Notice that with the default text ("This is some te") the "te" is missing (at least on the machines I tried; it might depend on the resolution or fonts. If that's the case try and type or delete some characters). If you delete or add a character the full text will show again.
