 There is already wxStaticText::Wrap() but it's not ideal.

 I agree that there is not much to be said about them and it's definitely
useful to use a read-only wxTextCtrl instead of wxStaticText if you want to
allow the user to copy the text. However this doesn't seem to be the case
here (why would you want to copy the labels?) and having a cursor appear in
the labels is IMO very unusual and could be surprising to the user. The
fact that when you double click (or click and drag but this is harder to do
accidentally) the control a word is selected can be considered a
disadvantage too.
