Desktop Label

From Xojo Documentation

Used to display text that the user cannot select or edit. Label controls are commonly used to label other controls (like Popup Menus or Text Fields) or provide titles for groups of controls. The text of the label can be controlled via code (using the Text property of the control), so you can use it to display dynamic text that is read-only.
