locate/select empty lable control on a form?

P: n/a
I placed an empty label control on a form. I could drag the mouse across the
form in design view to locate the lbl. But I have since moved a few controls
on the form around, and now I cannot locate this label control. Is there a
way to select the label in the design view besides dragging the mouse?

Thanks,
Rich

I ended up just adding some text to the label on the form load event and
moved all the other controls over to one side of the form. This did expose
the label's location, but ideally, I would like to be able to do something
like that in the design environment so that I don't have to load the program.
Is there a way to do something like that?

In the properties window, open the drop down list at the top of it and select
the label you are looking for. This should hi-light it on the form or you
could set its text property.
