Initializes a new instance of the Control class as a child control, with specific text.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Control(
	Control parent,
	string text


Type: System.Windows.Forms.Control

The Control to be the parent of the control.

Type: System.String

The text displayed by the control.

The Control class is the base class for all controls used in a Windows Forms application. Because this class is not typically used to create an instance of the class, this constructor is typically not called directly but is instead called by a derived class.

This version of the Control constructor sets the initial Text property value to the text parameter value. The constructor also adds the control to the parent control's Control.ControlCollection.
