c# windows form event handling

I'm having a problem coding a windows form using Visual Studio IDE the book I'm using is about as clear as mud. How do you code a button so it triggers an event in a label? I know this question is vague, but just need a hint if i'm still confused i'll ask other questions.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Double click the button in the IDE...

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    label1.Text = "something...";

following code raises the label click event from button click event

     private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            label1_Click(button1, e);

        private void label1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (sender is Button) // if the button is clicked
            label1.Text = "Lable Click Event Fired(from button)";
            else //if the label itself clicked
            label1.Text = "Lable Click Event Fired";
First, select the control -> In the properties windows, select events icon (a lightning shape) -> double click the event you want (you can enter a name or use the default name of the event) -> Write handing code
