TextLabel   statement / function

Statement syntax
textlabel tag, text, rect, wndTag

Function syntax
text = textlabel(tag)

The textlabel statement puts a new textlabel in the current output window, or alters an existing textlabel's characteristics. The textlabel function returns the label's text as a CFStringRef and is equivalent to calling fn ControlStringValue.

tag A number (1 through 1000000) that you assign when you create the textlabel and that you refer to when altering the label. The number you assign must be different from the tag value of all other existing widgets in the current window. A negative tag hides the textlabel.
text The text that appears inside the textlabel.
rect The textlabel's enclosing rectangle. This can be specified in either of two ways:
(i) (x,y,w,h) where x,y are the origin and w,h the size of the label.
(ii) A CGRect value
wndTag An optional parameter for when the textlabel's window is not the current output window. Note specifying this parameter does not bring the window to the front or make it the output window.
