How to make a LabelField right align when the text is long?

In order to make a right aligned LabelField, I create the LabelField with style "FIELD_RIGHT" and add it to a VFM, it works when the text can be displayed in one line. But when the text is long than one line, it doesn't work well.


For example, if text is "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB", it displays like this:


looks like left aligned


How can I get this?
