  • If you interop to DirectWrite to draw the text then you can use DWRITE_TRIMMING_GRANULARITY_CHARACTER .

    If you want to stay within Xaml then you can use only WordEllipses.

  • Hi Rob,

       Can We expect "CHARACTER ELLIPSES" in future in xaml ?

    and also don't we have any alternative to achieve the CHARACTER ELLIPSES in xaml (windows 8)  ? i.e any logic etc ..

    Thank You,

  • Hi Akwin,

    There isn't any good way to implement this purely in Xaml.

    We cannot make any promises about future versions.
