A label is a graphical control you can use to display text that the user can't change directly.
You can write code that changes a label in response to events at run time For example, if your application takes a few minutes to commit a change, you could display a processing-status message in a label. You can also use a label to identify a control, such as a text box , that does not have its own Caption property..
Set the AutoSize and WordWrap properties if you want the label to properly display variable-length lines or varying numbers of lines.
A label can also act as a destination link in a DDE To do this, set the LinkTopic property to establish a link, set the LinkItem property to specify an item for the conversation, and set the LinkMode property to activate the link. When these have been set, Visual Basic attempts to initiate the conversation and displays a message if it is unable to do so. conversation.
