You can define an accelerator character for a DesktopLabel. In the Text property, precede the accelerator character with an ampersand. For example, the entry "&Home" signifies that the H is the accelerator. Pressing Alt+H on Windows triggers the AcceleratorKey event.

Labels on macOS are not meant to ever appear disabled. As a result, the Enabled property of a Label has no effect on macOS.

Sample Code

The following code sets the text of the Label:

Me.Text = "Hello World"
