public class Label extends Control
Shadow styles are hints and may not be honoured by the platform. To create a separator label with the default shadow style for the platform, do not specify a shadow style.
Note: Only one of SHADOW_IN, SHADOW_OUT and SHADOW_NONE may be specified. SHADOW_NONE is a HINT. Only one of HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL may be specified. Only one of CENTER, LEFT and RIGHT may be specified.
IMPORTANT: This class is intended to be subclassed only within the SWT implementation.

public Label(Composite parent, int style)
The style value is either one of the style constants defined in
SWT which is applicable to instances of this
class, or must be built by bitwise OR'ing together
(that is, using the
int "|" operator) two or more
SWT style constants. The class description
lists the style constants that are applicable to the class.
Style bits are also inherited from superclasses.
parent- a composite control which will be the parent of the new instance (cannot be null)
style- the style of control to construct
public void setText(java.lang.String text)
This method sets the widget label. The label may include the mnemonic character and line delimiters.
Mnemonics are indicated by an '&' that causes the next character to be the mnemonic. When the user presses a key sequence that matches the mnemonic, focus is assigned to the control that follows the label. On most platforms, the mnemonic appears underlined but may be emphasised in a platform specific manner. The mnemonic indicator character '&' can be escaped by doubling it in the string, causing a single '&' to be displayed.
text- the new text

public Point computeSize(int wHint, int hHint, boolean changed)
The preferred size of a control is the size that it would
best be displayed at. The width hint and height hint arguments
allow the caller to ask a control questions such as "Given a particular
width, how high does the control need to be to show all of the contents?"
To indicate that the caller does not wish to constrain a particular
dimension, the constant
SWT.DEFAULT is passed for the hint.
If the changed flag is
true, it indicates that the receiver's
contents have changed, therefore any caches that a layout manager
containing the control may have been keeping need to be flushed. When the
control is resized, the changed flag will be
false, so layout
manager caches can be retained.

trueif the control's contents have changed, and

public void setData(java.lang.String key, java.lang.Object value)
Applications may associate arbitrary objects with the receiver in this fashion. If the objects stored in the properties need to be notified when the widget is disposed of, it is the application's responsibility to hook the Dispose event on the widget and do so.
