I have a Windows Form that I have placed a specific Label Control on. This form has TONS of controls on it and apparently this Label Control is hidden somewhere underneath another control. Is there a way of finding a control without having to move existing controls around and then resetting them back to their original position?

Thanks!

In Property windows, under "Properties" caption has a drop box with listing of all controls. If you know the name or at least its type, you can search for it here. After you select is, it will be visible on the form with border style in selected mode.
