Property Descriptions

AutowrapMode autowrap_mode = 0

If set to something other than TextServer.AUTOWRAP_OFF, the text gets wrapped inside the node's bounding rectangle. If you resize the node, it will change its height automatically to show all the text. To see how each mode behaves, see AutowrapMode.


bool clip_text = false

  • void set_clip_text ( bool value )

  • bool is_clipping_text ( )

If true, the Label only shows the text that fits inside its bounding rectangle and will clip text horizontally.


HorizontalAlignment horizontal_alignment = 0

Controls the text's horizontal alignment. Supports left, center, right, and fill, or justify. Set it to one of the HorizontalAlignment constants.


BitField<JustificationFlag> justification_flags = 163

Line fill alignment rules. For more info see JustificationFlag.


LabelSettings label_settings

A LabelSettings resource that can be shared between multiple Label nodes. Takes priority over theme properties.


String language = ""

  • void set_language ( String value )

  • String get_language ( )

Language code used for line-breaking and text shaping algorithms, if left empty current locale is used instead.


int lines_skipped = 0

  • void set_lines_skipped ( int value )

  • int get_lines_skipped ( )

The number of the lines ignored and not displayed from the start of the text value.


int max_lines_visible = -1

  • void set_max_lines_visible ( int value )

  • int get_max_lines_visible ( )

Limits the lines of text the node shows on screen.


StructuredTextParser structured_text_bidi_override = 0

Set BiDi algorithm override for the structured text.


Array structured_text_bidi_override_options = []

  • void set_structured_text_bidi_override_options ( Array value )

  • Array get_structured_text_bidi_override_options ( )

Set additional options for BiDi override.


PackedFloat32Array tab_stops = PackedFloat32Array()

Aligns text to the given tab-stops.


String text = ""

The text to display on screen.


TextDirection text_direction = 0

Base text writing direction.


OverrunBehavior text_overrun_behavior = 0

Sets the clipping behavior when the text exceeds the node's bounding rectangle. See OverrunBehavior for a description of all modes.
