# DWRITE_TRIMMING structure

Specifies the trimming option for text overflowing the layout box.

## Syntax

``````struct DWRITE_TRIMMING {
DWRITE_TRIMMING_GRANULARITY granularity;
UINT32                      delimiter;
UINT32                      delimiterCount;
};
``````

## Members

`granularity`

A value that specifies the text granularity used to trim text overflowing the layout box.

`delimiter`

Type: UINT32

A character code used as the delimiter that signals the beginning of the portion of text to be preserved. Text starting from the Nth occurence of the delimiter (where N equals delimiterCount) counting backwards from the end of the text block will be preserved. For example, given the text is a path like c:\A\B\C\D\file.txt and delimiter equal to '' and delimiterCount equal to 1, the file.txt portion of the text would be preserved.
Specifying a delimiterCount of 2 would preserve D\file.txt.

`delimiterCount`

Type: UINT32

The delimiter count, counting from the end of the text, to preserve text from.
