you can create by yourself.
Create a timer object in your form, implement the Tick event with this content:

Private Shared Sub Timer1_Tick(myObject As Object,  myEventArgs As EventArgs)
        yourLabel.Text = yourLabel.Text.Substring(1) & yourLabel.Text.Substring(0,1)
End Sub

Hi,

Thank you for you help. The only issue I have is that I want the whole text to disapear off the label control before it scrolls again.

Many Thanks

OK, there are many tricks, the simplest is to add many white spaces at the end of the text:

yourLabel.text = "SOME TEXT TO ROTATE                                        "

But resize your control to show just "SOME TEXT TO ROTATE"
