hi,

The Z-order of a control is determined by its index in the container's Controls collection.  The one at index 0 is on top, the last one is at the bottom.  One thing you can do is give all the labels you create the same Click event.  Then you can find the candidate labels with a Click event handler like this:    private void Label_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    Label lbl = sender as Label;
    Point pos = lbl.Parent.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition);
    foreach (Control ctl in lbl.Parent.Controls) {
      if (ctl is Label && new Rectangle(ctl.Location, ctl.Size).Contains(pos))
      Console.WriteLine(ctl.Name);
    }
    }
