Making An Object To Stay On Top

I have a frame that I move up and down.
There's a label above it.
When i move the frame up, it goes on top of the label.
I want the frame to disappear beneath the label.
How?

You have a property called ZORDER (check the property window), u need to set this property for the label  so that it appears on top.

You could use a textbox with properties set to look and act like a label.

If you want the label to be contained in the frame you must create the label on the frame to begin with. Try cutting the label and then selecting the frame and choosing paste.
There is a right click option to 'bring to front' also but I don't think it applys when one object is a frame.

Nope, sorry If I didn't make myself clear!

I want the Label above the frame (more to the top of the screen)
and then move the frame up, while the label stays on top, so the frame kinda 'slips under' the label. Do u know how you do that??

Visual Basic includes 4 graphical controls (Label, Shape, Line, and Image) which do not create Windows and hence consume ZERO USER resources.

As you can see a label is not a window so can never slide frame under it. You will have to use another control in place of the label. Another frame with caption set and sized down or with a label on it would be a good choice.
or textbox or use IEsuper label.
