Before you begin:

It is not an extreme necessity, but sometimes you may need such control. Its main properties include font, V and H alignment, fore and back color, and direction (up and down).

My comment:
The VLabel class is subclassed from the Image Control.

When invoked, the DrawLabel method creates a temporary bitmap file and passes its name to the Picture property of the control. On the Destroy event this temporary file is erased.

Also the Caption property name is changed to VCaption, somehow the Caption is not accepted (VFP6).

The Rotation property has been added to standard Label Control in VFP9. It specifies a number of degrees to rotate a control in a counterclockwise direction.
