I have a label on a form that I set to blank and I couldn't find it unless I tabbed through all the controls or selected it from properties or View - Tab Order or click around.

Is there any way of changing VS2012 to show the blank labels. In ASP.NET it shows it with [Labe1] or something like that.

It won't show because it looks like it doesn't have text to show so it blends into its surroundings, either set it with a default text(which you can then change at runtime) or set its background color to one that you will be able to see on the form.

I always put a # in a blank label. This is enough to see them and be able to select them.

I prefer that to using a BackColor or a border, because their text usually has to be changed anyway before displaying the form. Using a BackColor or a border requires extra code to remove them that I would not have to write otherwise.
