Let me explain. When I write an application in Visual Studio, I design the forms using the form designer. You open a class library and drop objects on the form, then program the behavior of those objects. When I drop a text box, i.e. a field to type text into, it has a default label of "text 1" for the first, "text 2" for the next, etc. I sounds like a box control was orphaned on the form and is displayed. Probably won't cause any problem - it's just sloppy coding.
