I have a Date label named Due Date; I need the font color to change to red if the due date has passed, can someone point me in the right direction. I did find the code to change Text color but not for a Date range.

I think I can help you. You can use a code like this in the Before Show event of Label control. The solution is applicable for labels which Data Type is set to Date.
DateTime d = DateTime.Parse(FormNameLabelName.Text);  
            if (d < DateTime.Now) FormNameLabelName.Text = "<font color=\"red\">" + FormNameLabelName.Text + "</font>";  
Remember to set Content property of the Label to HTML.

Thanks Nicole, worked perfictly once I convert it from C# to VB.Net.

Dim d As DateTime = DateTime.Parse(CompanyStages_Results_StaDueDate.Text)
If d < DateTime.Now Then
CompanyStages_Results_StaDueDate.Text = "<font color=""red"">" + CompanyStages_Results_StaDueDate.Text + "</font>"
End If
Thanks again
