Allowing your label to ellipsize will cut a part of your string when there isn't enough space for it, you can enable it and choose which part will be cut with the `GtkLabel ellipize property`_. Use it if you really need your label to be on a single line.
.. note:: If you allow your label to be elipsized, make sure that its `xalign property <GtkLabel xalign property_>`_ matches its justification or your label may not be properly aligned when ellipsized: 0 for left, 1 for right, or 0.5 for center.
Letting your label wrap will preserve the integrity of the text at the expense of more height, you can enable it with the `GtkLabel wrap property`_ and choose how to wrap with the `GtkLabel wrap-mode property`_.
.. note:: By allowing the label to wrap, it will always request enough height when fully wrapped. Consider putting your label or a widget containing it into a scrollable window to avoid height becoming a problem.
