Question How can i set a label text's max width?

I set a Label control like this:
xml Code:
  1. <Label name="$(parent)Name" font="ZoFontGameSmall" color="INTERFACE_COLOR_TYPE_TEXT_COLORS:INTERFACE_TEXT_COLOR_DISABLED" width="110" height="20" wrapMode="TEXT_WRAP_MODE_TRUNCATE">
  2.     <Anchor relativeTo="$(parent)Star" point="LEFT" relativePoint="RIGHT" offsetX="2" offsetY="0"/>
  3. </Label>

It is in a virtual control and will be created many times in lua file.

But it seems that the wrapMode="TEXT_WRAP_MODE_TRUNCATE" doesnt work, the long text will expand without being truncated. How can i set the max width of a text?

Lua Code:
  1. <Label wrapMode="TRUNCATE">
  2.     <Dimensions x="110" y="20" />

You need to set the Dimensions for a height & width, and/or DimensionConstraints for the min and max values of a control in order to assure it's not getting wider e.g.
