Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to create a Label control that has a three-dimensional border and an image displayed using the ImageList and ImageIndex properties. The control also has a caption with a mnemonic character specified. The example code uses the PreferredHeight and PreferredWidth properties to properly size the Label control on the form on which it is displayed. This example requires that an ImageList has been created and named imageList1 and that it has loaded two images. The example also requires that the code is within a form that has the System.Drawing namespace added to its code.

public:
   void CreateMyLabel()
   {
      // Create an instance of a Label.
      Label^ label1 = gcnew Label;
      
      // Set the border to a three-dimensional border.
      label1->BorderStyle = System::Windows::Forms::BorderStyle::Fixed3D;
      // Set the ImageList to use for displaying an image.
      label1->ImageList = imageList1;
      // Use the second image in imageList1.
      label1->ImageIndex = 1;
      // Align the image to the top left corner.
      label1->ImageAlign = ContentAlignment::TopLeft;
      
      // Specify that the text can display mnemonic characters.
      label1->UseMnemonic = true;
      // Set the text of the control and specify a mnemonic character.
      label1->Text = "First &Name:";
      
      /* Set the size of the control based on the PreferredHeight and PreferredWidth values. */
      label1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( label1->PreferredWidth, label1->PreferredHeight );
      
      //...Code to add the control to the form...
   }
public void CreateMyLabel()
{
   // Create an instance of a Label.
   Label label1 = new Label();

   // Set the border to a three-dimensional border.
   label1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.Fixed3D;
   // Set the ImageList to use for displaying an image.
   label1.ImageList = imageList1;
   // Use the second image in imageList1.
   label1.ImageIndex = 1;
   // Align the image to the top left corner.
   label1.ImageAlign = ContentAlignment.TopLeft;

   // Specify that the text can display mnemonic characters.
   label1.UseMnemonic = true;
   // Set the text of the control and specify a mnemonic character.
   label1.Text = "First &Name:";
   
   /* Set the size of the control based on the PreferredHeight and PreferredWidth values. */
   label1.Size = new Size (label1.PreferredWidth, label1.PreferredHeight);

   //...Code to add the control to the form...
}

Public Sub CreateMyLabel()
    ' Create an instance of a Label.
    Dim label1 As New Label()
       
    ' Set the border to a three-dimensional border.
    label1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.Fixed3D
    ' Set the ImageList to use for displaying an image.
    label1.ImageList = imageList1
    ' Use the second image in imageList1.
    label1.ImageIndex = 1
    ' Align the image to the top left corner.
    label1.ImageAlign = ContentAlignment.TopLeft
     
    ' Specify that the text can display mnemonic characters.
    label1.UseMnemonic = True
    ' Set the text of the control and specify a mnemonic character.
    label1.Text = "First &Name:"
       
    ' Set the size of the control based on the PreferredHeight and PreferredWidth values. 
    label1.Size = New Size(label1.PreferredWidth, label1.PreferredHeight)

    '...Code to add the control to the form...
End Sub

Remarks

You can use this property to add a border to the control. This property is typically used to differentiate a Label that labels another control from a Label that displays the status of a process in an application.
