The only way to do this is to have a second label control, or print a second line of text (whatever method you're using) offset by a few pixels in a shadow color. There's no automatic way to do this.

try this  (I am usign the same method as jbabcock)
during design time, put 2 label close with each other, (LEFT property different by let say 40 )
Set the label which is behind backcolor equal to the form (So now you only see a label)
At the from label mousemove event, code this
label2.forecolor = qbcolor(10)
now the label behind will be seen and it will look like the shadow of the first label .
