>>  1. I want to make the caption of label to be "The sum is:" SUM, where SUM is an integer. Label1->Caption = "The sum is" + SUM; doesn't work..

Try :

        Label1->Caption = "The sum is " + IntToStr(SUM);

>> 2. How do I change line in a label caption?

Try :

        Label1->Caption = "The first line\nThe second line";

Notice the \n which starts a new line.

int intValue = 5;

Label1->Caption = "text" + AnsiString(intValue);

You can define WordWrap = true for the Label so it wraps the text if it is too long to fit into the current line. Or make 2 separate labels ;)
