    I'm displaying some information in a panel using the RadLabel.  I noticed that you cannot select (i.e., drag and highlight) the RadLabel Text.  Is there a setting so that the label can be highlighted for copy and paste purposes by the user?

    Thank you!

    Best Regards,

    Hello Edmund,

    Thank you for writing.

    RadLabel is a themeable alternative to the standard Windows Forms label control. Hence, it does not support text selection and copy/paste functionality. It is designed just to display text. However, I would suggest you use a RadTextBox and customize it to look like a selectable label. Here is a sample code snippet:
    this.radTextBox1.Text = "Hello, Select Me";
    this.radTextBox1.ReadOnly = true;
    this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.ShowBorder = false;
    this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.Fill.BackColor = this.BackColor;       
    this.radTextBox1.BackColor = this.BackColor;
    this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.BackColor = this.BackColor;
    this.radTextBox1.TabStop = false;

    Let me know how this works for you.
