Overview

The ui5-label is a component used to represent a label, providing valuable information to the user. Usually it is placed next to a value holder, such as a text field. It informs the user about what data is displayed or expected in the value holder.

The ui5-label appearance can be influenced by properties, such as required and wrappingType. The appearance of the Label can be configured in a limited way by using the design property. For a broader choice of designs, you can use custom styles.
