If you by change mean, displaying a new text - like setting the label1.caption = 'My Text', then i suggest that you take a TTimer  and write an OnTimer eventhandler that updates the labels caption.

Sorry, I'll keep that in mind.
But if you next time write that you are new to Delphi I won't have to guess. Some people don't like if you write them as if they are newcommers, even that they might be.
You can also reject the answer and ask for an example.
