Examples

The following example shows how to set the Trimming property and how to use the StringTrimming enumeration. This example is designed to be used with a Windows Form. Paste this code into a form and call the ShowStringTrimming method when handling the form's Paint event, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

private:
   void ShowStringTrimming( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      StringFormat^ format1 = gcnew StringFormat;
      String^ quote = "Not everything that can be counted counts,"
      " and not everything that counts can be counted.";
      format1->Trimming = StringTrimming::EllipsisWord;
      e->Graphics->DrawString( quote, this->Font, Brushes::Black, RectangleF(10.0F,10.0F,90.0F,50.0F), format1 );
   }
private void ShowStringTrimming(PaintEventArgs e)
{

    StringFormat format1 = new StringFormat();
    string quote = "Not everything that can be counted counts," +
        " and not everything that counts can be counted.";
    format1.Trimming = StringTrimming.EllipsisWord;
    e.Graphics.DrawString(quote, this.Font, Brushes.Black, 
        new RectangleF(10.0F, 10.0F, 90.0F, 50.0F), format1);
}
Private Sub ShowStringTrimming(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    Dim format1 As New StringFormat
    Dim quote As String = "Not everything that can be counted counts," & _
        " and not everything that counts can be counted."
    format1.Trimming = StringTrimming.EllipsisWord
    e.Graphics.DrawString(quote, Me.Font, Brushes.Black, _
        New RectangleF(10.0F, 10.0F, 90.0F, 50.0F), format1)
End Sub
