Hi Allon,

You can handle label's paint event and draw the string.

private void label1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
e.Graphics.DrawString(label1.Text, label1.Font, new SolidBrush(Color.Gray), 1, 1);
e.Graphics.DrawString(label1.Text, label1.Font, new SolidBrush(label1.ForeColor), 0, 0);

Hi, Mano

Thanks for your example. It works perfect.

I'd like to know how to do the same thing, without changing the location of the Label1.Text (when the Label1.Text is in the middle of the label, for example). I hope It's something simple and it's not depending on calculations depend on Label1.Text location. If it is the only way to do it, then it will be very helpful to know the location of the Label1.Text within the label control.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Allon,

Please refer to the MyLabel class implementation in the Form1 in the attached sample. With this you can give Shadow Text to your label at any alignment.

Please change the ShadowColor property of the class to change the shadow color in rendering.
