The Y position of the control, in pixels, from the top edge of the control's container. The value is assigned to the Top property.

The Control class is the base class for all controls used in a Windows Forms application. Because this class is not typically used to create an instance of the class, this constructor is typically not called directly but is instead called by a derived class.

This version of the Control constructor sets the initial Text property value to the text parameter value. The initial Size and Location of the control are determined by the left, top, width and height parameter values.

NoteNote:

To maintain better performance, do not set the size of a control in its constructor. The preferred method is to override the DefaultSize property.
