    *TLabel at runtime

    Hi, i need to be able to create a TLabel at runtime, and some how either associate the Label with the form, or the form with the label, or maybe even both i'm not quite sure. I've tried the following:

    Code:
    TLabel *Text;
    Text = new TLabel(NULL);
    
    Text->Parent = DestForm //contains address of the form
    
    Text->Caption = "Test";
    Test->Visible = true;
    I've had luck though.... thanks is advance.

    What's your question? Your code seems OK.

    You might want to set the Left & Top properties. You can also assign the TLabel's parent to anything derived from TWinControl not just a form. I.e. you can make it's parent a TPanel.

    I've tried using the code, but the label will not appear on the form. btw i omitted the left and top, i also set the font name , color, size etc. It just won't seem to work, also tried passing the address of the form in the label's constructor, but that didn't work either. Test = new TLabel(this);

    You shouldn't need to do this.

    I've used this technique & had no problems with it. When I get home (I'm away from my PC at the moment), I'll send you some code.

    All I can suggest is that you ensure that when placing the TLabel on your form, there is nothing covering it's position, such as TPanel.

    Hi, thanks for your time. It's working now...... I was setting the TLabel to NULL by accident! , which is probably why it wasn't working! stupid! never mind!
