How do I display an integer into a label's text in visual c++?

I am trying this:

int x = 5;
this->label1->Text = x;

but it displays error,

error C2664: 'void System::Windows::Forms::Control::Text::set(System::String ^)' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'int' to 'System::String ^'
        No user-defined-conversion operator available, or
        No standard conversion exists from the boxed form of the arithmetic type to the target type

it's a common error, you try to assign an integer to a text field.
You must convert from int to String.
I don't know exactly the sintax:

this->label1->Text = x.ToString();

you can use:
this->label1->Text = System::Convert::ToString(x);
