How to vertically align labels

Is there a way to vertically align labels? I understand that you can use height: 'auto' to make the height auto adjust to the size of the label. This would great except that I need the height of the label to be a certain value. So I figure I have to options. Set the height to 'auto' and somehow make it have a maximum height OR somehow vertically align the text to top. Is this possible and if so how?

    I would try adding the label to a container view and position the label at top:0 and left:0, then make the container view your desired "maximum size" - I think that would achieve the results you're looking for.

          height: 'auto',
          top: 110

    • Ya I currently use this but the problem is that as the label gets more content the height will auto adjust down which is fine but I need it to max out at around 80 pixels if that makes sense.
