Specify the Label Parameter

A label is a string that defines the content and formatting of menu items. Menu item labels can contain DIESEL string expressions that conditionally alter the labels each time they are displayed.

In addition to the DIESEL string expressions, the label may contain special codes. For example, an ampersand (&) placed directly before a character specifies that character as the accelerator key.

The text the user sees displayed for the menu item is called the Caption, and it is derived from the label by interpreting all the DIESEL string expressions and special codes contained in the label. For example, the label “&Edit” produces the caption “Edit.”

Once a menu item has been created, you can change the label for the menu item using the Label property.
