I created a button that is narrow horizontally and long vertically. I want to show text in the button that is vertical. For example,


T
h
i
s

B
u
t
t
o
n

i
s

v
e
r
t
i
c
a
l


How can I do that?

You don't specify how you build the button. But generally speaking UIButton/Button will automatically adjust the text to the frame so if the frame is tall and not very wide, it will accommodate, though you may need to set the number of lines to 0 so it doesn't limit it to 1 line if it defaults to that
But you know, to just raw answer your question and show you how it can be done, void of context - this is a way

How do I set lines to 0 in a button? I cannot see that there is any way to do that using the Xcode inteface.

As I was alluding to with my prior comment we’d need to know more about your development environment. Is this a SwiftUI or UIKit codebase?
If we’re talking about a UIKit UIButton then it has a titleLabel property that you can set numberOfLines on. I.e.
button.titleLabel.numberOfLines = 0
