Displays plain text in a line or wrapped inside a rectangle. For formatted text, use RichTextLabel.
    public class Label : Control

Label displays plain text on the screen. It gives you control over the horizontal and vertical alignment, and can wrap the text inside the node’s bounding rectangle. It doesn’t support bold, italics or other formatting. For that, use RichTextLabel instead.

Note that contrarily to most other Controls, Label’s Control.MouseFilter defaults to MOUSE_FILTER_IGNORE (i.e. it doesn’t react to mouse input events).

Inheritance Chain


    public Label()


    public AlignEnum Align { get; set; }

Controls the text’s horizontal align. Supports left, center, right, and fill, or justify. Set it to one of the ALIGN_* constants.

    public bool Autowrap { get; set; }

If true, wraps the text inside the node’s bounding rectangle. If you resize the node, it will change its height automatically to show all the text. Default: false.

    public bool ClipText { get; set; }

If true, the Label only shows the text that fits inside its bounding rectangle. It also lets you scale the node down freely.

    public int LinesSkipped { get; set; }

The node ignores the first lines_skipped lines before it starts to display text.

    public int MaxLinesVisible { get; set; }

Limits the lines of text the node shows on screen.

    public float PercentVisible { get; set; }

Limits the count of visible characters. If you set percent_visible to 50, only up to half of the text’s characters will display on screen. Useful to animate the text in a dialog box.

    public string Text { get; set; }

The text to display on screen.

    public bool Uppercase { get; set; }

If true, all the text displays as UPPERCASE.

    public VAlign Valign { get; set; }

Controls the text’s vertical align. Supports top, center, bottom, and fill. Set it to one of the VALIGN_* constants.

    public int VisibleCharacters { get; set; }

Restricts the number of characters to display. Set to -1 to disable.
