Is there a create_text() mode or technique that supports word wrap? I'm stuck using create_text() vs. a Label or Text widget because I'm placing text on top of an image on my Canvas.
Also, is there a Tkinter API that truncates text that doesn't fit a certain width with an ellipsis like suffix, eg. "Where very, very, very long text" gets converted to something like "Where very, very, ...".
There is indeed a word wrap feature in
create_text(). You'd call it like so:
canvas.create_text(x, y, width=80)
You can set the width parameter to whatever max length you want, or 0 if you want no word wrapping. See this article for all the options, arguments etc. for
I'm not sure about truncating text, but I did see this talking about a way to limit the length of input in an Entry widget...
