Stored procedures
The CaptionWidth property is used to get and change the width reserved for the text area in an Edit or Combo Box control.
Remark: This property is useful when creating a control with ControlCreate. Indeed, during the dynamic creation of a control, the width of the caption is set to 0 by default.
Example
// Enlarge the caption of edit control
EDT_EDIT1.Width += 150
EDT_EDIT1.CaptionWidth += 150
EDT_EDIT1.Caption = CUSTOMER.NAME + "'s phone number"
