I know how to center a label on my form for a fixed Length, but I have a variable that will change in length.  I would like it to display in the center regardless of the length.  How would I do that?  Thanks, Chad

what you need to do to the label is put autosize=true then
dim y as integer=form1.height/2
dim x as integer=form1.width/2 - label1.width/2
label1.location=new point(x,y)

I just tried this, but it does not work
dim x as integer=form1.width/2 - label1.width/2
label1.location=new point(x,y)

 If I do it like:

dim x as integer=485/2 - label1.width/2
label1.location=new point(x,205)

This works, but would get messed up if I change the form size.

It does not like the "form1.width"?  It recomended I try using me instead, but could not get that to work either.  Am I missing something?  Not a big deal because this will also work.

Thanks, Chad

chadmanvb: Try this ...

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Click
        Label1.Text &= "X"
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        CentreLabel()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Resize(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Resize
        CentreLabel()
    End Sub

    '//-- Change location when text changes
    Private Sub Label1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Label1.TextChanged
        CentreLabel()
    End Sub

    '//-- Centre the text
    Private Sub CentreLabel()
        Label1.Location = New Point(Me.Width / 2 - (Label1.Width / 2), Me.Height / 2 - (Label1.Height / 2))
    End Sub
End Class
