    Limiting char lenght from xml

    mannerism
      Hi, I need to strip headlines that are longer then 40 characters and to add "..." and the end of the string.

      I'm importing feed from xml into xmlConnector component and rendering thru listBox component.

      I have code that can maybe help:

      if (label.length > 40){
      label = label.substring(0,40) + " ...";
      }

      but I cannot target headlines that are coming from xml.

      Any idea how I can do this? Thanks.
