Sometimes display text will be so long that it goes out of screen,in such case we can use ClipToFit() method to show ".." of the text.

Here, is the code to do so,

const CFont* myFont = iEikonEnv->DenseFont();
TBuf<100> buffer;
TInt aMaxWidthInPixels; //depending on your screen dimensions use this, for 176x208
//I use 100.
buffer.Copy(_L("BackStreet Boys Music tracks"));
AknTextUtils::ClipToFit(buffer,*myFont, aMaxWidthInPixels, AknTextUtils::EClipFromEnd,

Now use this "buffer" in your Drawtext() method.
