    How to remove scrollbar from text

      I have a control <mx:text> is contained within a canvas. I want to make sure the length is not over a certain size, however when i do this the text is longer than the area and it places a scroll bar right over the text. I know with a textarea control I can set the scrollbar policies to off, but that is not available for text. I really would just like it to truncate the text, but cannot find any way to do it. Any help on how to get rid of the scrollbar, and keep the size I would like would be great!
