Caption

The Caption is the text the label displays.

{$ifdef mse_unicodestring}
  msestring = unicodestring;
{$else}
  msestring = widestring;
{$endif}
 
property caption: msestring;

Options

With the option lao_nogray you can prevent a label to be shown grayed if itself or a parent widget is disabled.

labeloptionty = (lao_nogray,lao_nounderline);
labeloptionsty = set of labeloptionty;
 
property Options: labeloptionsty default [];

If you use a & char in a caption, the following char gets underlined. To prevent this use lao_nounderline:
