In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Label Component in Flash CS4.

The label component can be very helpful in Flash. It can be easily used to bring in Dynamic information regarding photos or other objects. The label component is typically a one line object than can be customized to display text in any desired format. If you prefer to use the dynamic text box, it can do the same things. For the most part, this component is easy to use and set up. Good luck using it in your projects.
