    How to specify "path ellipsis" for static text in the code

    I'm generating some static text on the fly in my program & would like to use the path ellipsis attribute (like the one you can select in the properties tab in the GUI). How do you do that in the code? I can't seem to find the documentation on it.

    Thanks

    Look up 'Static Control Styles' at MSDN or in your local help. You'll find SS_PATHELLIPSIS.
