Hi everybody,
it is possible to set a maximum width of a control? To speak namely I
have Label with very long text that is wrapped inside parent composite:

Label lblLongLabel = new Label(container, SWT.WRAP);
lblLongLabel.setText("very very very long text in size approx of a few

I don't want to set fixed size except maximum width. Height should be
real height of wrapped label text.

Unfortunatelly calculated width is always screen resolution maximum
which is very awkward.

Google didn't helped me a lot. I don't want to listen "write your own
layout" :-) but AFAIK there's no feature like "maximum width".

Thanks a lot
