lpd,

 Put a label on the form, set it's caption to blank (nothing) so it does not show any text. At runtime simply assign a value to the Caption of the Label with something like:

Label1.Caption := 'Hi There!';

Good luck with your project!

Okay...you can also create your label at runtime...



type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
    Label1 : TLabel;
    procedure MyClick(Sender: TObject);
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;


implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.MyClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage('Hello');
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
Label1 := TLabel.create(self);
with Label1 do
begin
  parent := self;  //or the form/panel...
  top := 10;
  left := 20;
  caption := 'My Message';
  onclick := myClick;
  show;
end;
end;

end.
