    Question Displaying values of variables to a Form

    I'm using Borland C++ Builder 5 and i simply want to be able to have an area on a form that displays the value of a certain variable. should i use a label or something else?

    an example of what i want to do... lets say there are two buttons on my form, button1 and button2. if you click button1, it sets x=10. if you click button2, it sets x=20. there is also an area on the form that is displaying whatever x is currently equal to. so after clicking button1, it will display 10. after clicking button2 the area will display 20.

    Whats the best way to go about doing this?

    thanks

    You could use a label or ex: a textBox. Im not using Borland but one way to do it for ex button1 should be:
    Code:
    label1->Text = "10";
    or

    Code:
    label1.Text = "10";
