Find string controls that are sized to show only one line but are NOT set to "limit to single line"

Most of my string controls are only one line high and accept maybe a single word or small string that should remain a single line (table header, file prefix, etc.). For these controls, it is much more intuitive to be able to end the entry with a <enter> key, but if they are not set to limit to single line (The default for strings! 😞 ) pressing the enter will just add a linefeed, making part of the string disappear from view and polluting the string with a newline character that should not be there.

 

I am proposing a VI analyzer test that would find all string controls that are relatively shallow, but have the "limit to single line" not checked and/or still have wrapping enabled. These options only make sense if the string control has room for several lines.

 

Should be easy to do, right?

Posting by phone, will look at it later. Looks promising. (Not sure why my earlier search could not find this...)
