RAD Studio VCL Reference
TCustomLabel Class

TCustomLabel is the base class for non-windowed controls that display text on a form.

TCustomLabel = class(TGraphicControl);
class TCustomLabel : public TGraphicControl;

Use TCustomLabel as a base class when defining objects that display text that users can't edit. TCustomLabel introduces several new properties and methods to control the appearance of the text. 

TCustomLabel is not a descendant of TWinControl, so it does not have its own window and can't receive direct input from the keyboard. To define an object that responds to direct keyboard input in addition to displaying text, use TCustomStaticText as a base class. 

Do not create instances of TCustomLabel. To put a label on a form, use a TLabel object.
