Centered Text

Hello,
I have a panel, inside of which is a label. This label shows the name of a month (e.g. January, May, etc) This month name is changed based on the user input in other fields of the form. What I want to do: To make the label text appear "horizontally centered" in the panel. The default situation is the label's left position is fixed, so with the longer names (like January) the label will expand from the right side. I would like to expand equally from both sides.
Please advise

The best thing to do here is set the width of the label to the width of the panel.
then, centre the text.

I can't do that from the properties toolbox of the VS. Should I do this programatically?

Actually, even this didn't help:

        LabelMonth.Width = PanelMonth.Width
        LabelMonth.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter

You can set it via code in your panel.resize event.

With Label
  .Left=0
  .Top = ??
  .Width = parent.width
  .Height = ??
End with

or you could do it like so :

LabelMonth.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
LabelMonth.left= (PanelMonth.width - LabelMonth.width) /2
