    LABEL control are not draw on PICTUREBOX control.

    A picturebox is intended to show pictures - jpg/png etc.

    Not labels.

    The label has no particular meaning to a picturebox.

    So you can't give a picturebox a label to show.

    You can drag a label above a picturebox and set it so it's on top.

    In winforms, I don't think you can actually set z-order as a property but you can use the technique in the code sample I supplied in your previous post:

    yourcontrol.BringToFront();

    Also.

    Setting allowdrop = true in the picturebox properties will have no effect whilst in the designer.

  • Hi Kumar,

    >> I have a PICTUREBOX control with AllowDrop = true.

    AllowDrop is not used for drag and drop control from ToolBox, it is used at runtime and you could drag and drop other files to picturebox. As the reply from Andy, you could not drop a label above a picturebox, did the suggestion from Andy work for you? Or, you could draw test as the reply from Fouad.

    If you have any issues about this, please feel free to let us know.

    Best Regards,
