How to show a label after it has been created in code

Hi there. I have created a NSTextField using code (see below) and am now trying to display it.

Could someone please tell me how this can be done.

NSTextField Label = new NSTextField
Frame = new RectangleF (18f, 362f, 134, 17),
Alignment = NSTextAlignment.Left,

Button.Activated += (object sender, EventArgs e) =>
Label.StringValue = TextEntry.StringValue <----- TextEntry is a Text Entry Field
//show the NSTextField

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

    My understanding is you always need to add dynamically created controls as subviews to the view where you wish it to appear. So, for example:

    I tried your example in an overridden CustomAwakeFromNib for a test form, and the label appears.

    Thank you for your help. I ended up creating it in Xcode and then showing and hiding it as needed.
