13.4. Control Properties and Layout

This section overviews properties that are common to many controls. Controls derive from class Control (namespace System.Windows.Forms). Figure 13.11 lists some of class Control’s properties and methods. The properties shown here can be set for many controls. For example, the Text property specifies the text that appears on a control. The location of this text varies depending on the control. In a Windows Form, the text appears in the title bar, but the text of a Button appears on its face.
