The following code example ensures that a Label is visible by calling its BringToFront method. This example requires that you have a Form with a Panel named panel1, and a Label named label1.

private void MakeLabelVisible()
{
   /* If the panel contains label1, bring it 
   * to the front to make sure it is visible. */
   if(panel1.Contains(label1))
