Here is the issue that I am having. I have a program that allows users to control the look and feel of the various controls on the forms, i.e. BoldText, Italics, Back/Fore Colors, etc.

Some of the functionality uses Label Controls as a "System Message" (usually large fonts and a distinct background color). My problem is that if a user decides to change all the Label controls to be Bold or Italics, this effects the "System Message" Bold and/or Italics properties, which brings me to creating a custom Label control. I've been playing around with the creation of a "UserControl" but I've never created one before so I'm not sure how to create a New Label control that contains FontSize, Bold, etc properties.
