you can use the MouseMove fonction for the command button (Switch to the code windows ,Choose in object listbox your command button and in the function listbox choose mousemove)

when the mouse is on the button this fonction is activated.
and in this fonction you can write a text to your label.

Private Sub command1_MouseMove()
Label4.Caption = "label text."
End Sub

I tried this but get a compile error:

"Procedure declaration does not match description of event or procedure having the same name."

The problem is in your event declaration
its like this.

Private Sub Command1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Label1.Caption = "WHATEVER"
End Sub

I guess I need to do the same for the mouseout, right?  This enables the label to be reset to "" or whatever default.

Points are not mine but this is not a website where you can use javascript command mouseout() vb doesn't have that event. What you can do is you can set up a boolean value to see if value has left has changed. Good luck.
