atlantis,

You can add a Timer control and set the Interval property to a specific time, then when Timer's event executed disable the label box or clear it and then disable the Timer.

Example
=======
Private Sub Form_Load()
 Label1.Caption = "testing..."
 Timer1.Interval = 1400
 Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
 Label1.Caption = ""
 Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub


Best regards
