..CaptionWidth is used to find out and modify the width reserved for the caption area in an edit control or in a Combo Box control.
Note: This property is useful when creating a control with ControlCreate. Indeed, during the dynamic creation of a control, the width of the caption is set to 0 by default.
Example
// Enlarge the caption of edit control
EDT_EDIT1..Width += 150
EDT_EDIT1..CaptionWidth += 150
EDT_Edit1..Caption = "Phone number of " + CUSTOMER.NAME
