Custom Property Label - Text Orientation

TJ Admin
Booster

Can someone please show me how to change the script to the existing Property Label so I can use it in a vertical application please. I just want to be able to keep the text horizontal. And the leader in the centre.

I tried all these settings in the parameters (variables), but it made no change.

I think the script below will help keep the text in horizontal orientation.
 
rrr= REQUEST ("view_rotangle", "", angleViewRotation)
ww=angleViewRotation

IF ww>90 and ww<=180 then
ROT2 180-ww
ENDIF

IF ww<=270 and ww>180 then
ROT2 180-ww
ENDIF

IF ww>270 and ww<=360 then
ROT2 -ww
ENDIF

IF ww>0 and ww<= 90 THEN 
ROT2 -ww
ENDIF

In my script, what position do I add your addendum to? Still a bit green with GDL. Do I have to add a parameter  (variable)?

I used the Archicad 26 and re-saved it as a custom label. Thanks so much for your input!
