Component Palette Icon:



The Label is one of the most versatile components. It can display text, images, or both. Labels are one of the most common components that you will want to add dynamic properties to. For instance, you can put an integer dynamic property of state on a Label, and then use an expression binding to bind the text to be "On" when the state=1 and "Off" otherwise. Bind the background color to be red when the state is 0, and green when the state is 1 using a property binding. Now you have a re-usable binary state indicator. While you could also use the Multi-State Indicator to achieve the same effect, the exercise is good practice for creating custom components. You can see how the flexibility of bindings and dynamic properties make the Label extremely versatile.


Most Properties have binding options. For more information on Bindings, see Types of Bindings in Perspective.
This section only documents the Props Category of properties. The other Categories are described on the Perspective Component Properties page.

Perspective Component Events

The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Perspective Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
