Need Help Placing Design Time Labels in PictureBox Using Visual Studio 2008

Hello,

I am building a Windows PC application using VS 2008 in the .NET 3.5 Framework (VB.NET).

I have some Labels created in design time that I need encapsulated in a PictureBox which is also created in design time.  At current the parent for the Labels appears to be my DialogBox, and with or without the PictureBox present the Labels don't show at runtime.  I've attempted "Bring To Front" for the Labels and PictureBox, but it doesn't help.

I would like to know how to make the PictureBox the parent of the Labels (I suspect at present the DialogBox is the parent of the Labels).  I also tried cutting and pasting the Labels, with the PictureBox selected, but it did not make the PictureBox the parent object.  It seems that other elements on the DialogBox are hiding the Labels.

Thanks very much,
Stu Engelman

Hi Idle,

Using PictureBox and "Send to Back" fixed it.

Thanks so much, Stu
