I'm not sure what those links do, as they seem to be dead.. maybe it's just my browser.

So I'm sorry if I repeat what's in those links

But what you could do is just draw a rectangle on the screen behind the label, then just set the label's backcolor to be transparent.

Something like

e.Graphics.FillRectangle(new LinearGradientBrush(BoundsOfLabel,Color.LightGreen,Color.Green,30,true),BoundsOfLabel);
