It is called a ToolTip. Almost all controls have a ToolTipText property. Simply set this property and the "yellow label" will appear automatically (no code required).

For a smaller and easier version you can use the ToolTip property which is available on evert control.

The tool tip can be created when you create the control and changed whenever you want.
