The most basic Label control is intended to display text in your report. It can represent static or dynamic text, or both. In addition, it can be used to calculate standard summary functions across a data field. The Label's text can only be formatted as a whole. So, if it's required to differently format parts of text, use the Rich Text control.

After a Label is added to a report, you can customize its text, appearance and other properties, which can be accessed in the Property Grid. The most important properties are also available via a control's Smart Tag, which makes it easy to perform common operations. And, the Formatting Toolbar allows you to easily adjust a Label's text formatting.

In the Property Grid, the Label control's properties are divided into the following groups.
