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.

private void InitializeLabel1()
{
    // Set a border.
    Label1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle;

    // Set the size, constructing a size from two integers.
    Label1.Size = new Size(100, 50);

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

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