The following code example demonstrates how to use the Point::Point and Size constructors and the System.Drawing::ContentAlignment enumeration. To run this example paste this code into a Windows Form that contains a label named Label1 and call the IntializeLabel1 method in the form's constructor.

void InitializeLabel1()
{
   // Set a border.
   Label1->BorderStyle = BorderStyle::FixedSingle;

   // Set the size, constructing a size from two integers.
   Label1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 100, 50 );

   // Set the location, constructing a point from a 32-bit integer 
   // (using hexadecimal).
   Label1->Location = Point(0x280028);

   // Set and align the text on the lower-right side of the label.
   Label1->TextAlign = ContentAlignment::BottomRight;
   Label1->Text = "Bottom Right Alignment";
}
