The label control allows you to display a simple string of text on the screen form. This text cannot be changed by the end user, although it can be changed by the application at run-time. The label control is typically used to display permanent labels for entry fields, explanatory notes, or titles. It can also be used to show changing activities, such as the time or the progress of a file-copying activity. Labels may occupy multiple lines. When a label is displayed on multiple lines, it uses word-wrapping, if possible, so that words are not broken across lines.
