Adding a New Label at Run Time

I have been unable to add a new label onto my form at run time because the 'new' command doesn't seem to work for a label. What's the best way to do this?

If you are using VB 6.0, the easiest way to add controls would be to use the Controls.Add method. The following is some simple code to add a label to the form and set its caption:

Dim objControl As Label
Set objControl = Controls.Add( _
  "VB.Label", "lblNewLabel", Me)
With objControl
    .Caption = "Let's add a label"
    .Left = 100
    .Top = 100
    .Visible = True
End With
