I am using mogrt created in ae for some captions animation in ppro, new line of text automatically creates customised text box wrapping the text:

My goal is automatically create newline of the text whenever the width of the text line hits some width point (I will import texts from csv file)
to track the width of the text line I have created some additional text layers in MOGRT with expressions 'comp(''texts).layer('textLine1').sourceRectAtTime()' and placed those layers offscreen, so user cannot see it, the problem that the text changes as it should, but api: the seq.videoTracks[3].clips[0].components[2].properties[16].getValue() returns json with empty 'textEditValue' - so my workaround for storing variables didn't work
I wonder is there any way to make somehow get the width of the text line or get the actuall text? Maybe QE?

No, PPro offers no API control over the dimensions of text layers.
