It is new since the 3.6.Ce_Test release so we have not gotten around
to documenting it yet.

TIB_Label is setup so that when you attach an IBO aware control to its
FocusControl property it will display the DisplayName for the
associated field. (It is actually a new version of something that
used to be in the AddOn directory, and later in my EnhComponents
called TLabelEnh).

The new AutoLabel feature of most IBO controls use TIB_Label
internally. Since most IBO controls now have this feature, the main
use for TIB_Label is as a "model" for the autolabels. Model is a
property of AutoLabel, which allows you to use a TLabel, TIB_Label,
TIB_Edit or TIB_EditEnh control as a template for the autolabel
(controlling suffix, dotleader, alignment etc).
