Set Width but not Height

I've been trying to set the Width of a field manager, and NOT the height.

 

I have a bunch of text that is unknown in length and needs to wrap to the next line. But I want ot set the width. Well, what I really want to do is setMargin and have a small border around the text (so it's no flush against the screen) but the "margin" doesn't seem to work if the width isn't set (for the right side)

 

I tried overriding the sublayout, but when you set the width, it stays on all one line.

 

How do I set the width of a field manager, but have the height be automatic?
