Item label size is limited to one line in Series 40 5th and 6th Editions due to Series 40-specific UI considerations.

How to reproduce

For example, implement a TextField with a long label text:

Form f;
TextField txtTest;
f=new Form("Form");
txtTest = new TextField("This is a long Item label, which means it will extend well beyond one line and should be visible in full on S60 and older Series 40 devices (Series 40 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 and before). ", null, 500, TextField.ANY);


For the affected Editions: either limit the item label size to fit on one line, or construct a StringItem with the text of desired length and place it above the item.
