RichTextField text truncation or ellipsis

Hi I'm new to BB Java dev and I'm trying to truncate the text of a non-focusable RichTextField. Is this possible?

 

I've tried the following with no success:

 

...
RichTextField _myRTF = new RichTextField(my_text, off, attrs, fonts, (DrawStyle.ELLIPSIS | RichTextField.FIELD_LEFT | RichTextField.NON_FOCUSABLE | RichTextField.NO_NEWLINE)) { ... };
...

 

I've also tried using Labelfield.ELLIPSIS with no luck. It works for LabelField but I have to use RichTextField because I'm using different font styles.

I ended up using LabelField instead with LabelField.ELLIPSIS, overiding the paint method and setting the font in there.
