Usign VBA to add controls to a .PDI file

I want to add a label to a .PDI display when the display is first opened.  I would prefer to use the MSForms label control.  The VBA language reference suggests this method:

 

Dim oNewLabel as object

 

Set oNewLabel = ThisDisplay.Symbols.add(pbSymbolControl, "Forms.label.1")

 

This works, but is extremely limited... Limited to the point where I can't even set the Caption property of the newly created label.  Is there a 'better' way of doing this?  I realise that I can use the other built-in ProcessBook symbols, but I want to make this work because I want to use other forms controls as well.
