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 ) )
      {
         label1->BringToFront();
      }
