Locks the label or caption to the owning control, indicator, or terminal. You cannot set this property on text fields that are not labels or captions, such as Boolean text, numeric text, free labels, and so on.

This property is similar to the Lock Label option in the shortcut menu.

Note You cannot lock labels to wires.

You can use the Position:Left and Position:Top properties to move a label programmatically. You also can use the Move to Default Location method to return the label to its default position programmatically.
