That's a little complicated, but possible - what you will have to do is create a graphics context on the label, use Graphics.MeasureString[^] to see how big it is going to be, and adjust the font size appropriately. Then repeat the measurements and see if you go it right!

Don't forget to Dispose unwanted Font and Graphics objects when you are finished with them.

See the documentation (it includes an example) - if you can't cope with it yet, then this is probably a bit beyond you at this stage and you would probably be better off finding a "simpler" user interface solution.
We aren't here to give you the code for your own work! :laugh:
