Wrap button text

Is there a way to set the maximum text length of a button, so that the text cannot come out from it?
For example, if I set the text with

Lua Code:
  1. button.text:SetText("This is a long long long text")

how can i make the text look like

Lua Code:
  1. This is a long...

Thanks in advance

Either fix the size of the fontstring or anchor both ends

Code:
button.Text:ClearAllPoints()
button.Text:SetPoint("LEFT", 4, 0)
button.Text:SetPoint("RIGHT", -4, 0)
