Animate Position of Label (text)

So, I'm building a face plate template. Trying to imitate vertical position animation in iFix where I put the alarm limits (HH, H, L, LL) by the side of process value bar that graphically shows the alarm limits.

What's the best way to accomplish this? Label object doesn't have a x/y position property available.

You can use system.gui.transform to move the label components with scripting.

Why not use the Linear Scale component and use the customizer to add scale indicators? That's what I do for my analog input faceplate. Once you add the indicators I add custom properties to the component to bind all of my setpoints, etc to to keep them in one place, then add a cell update binding to the component to customize the indicator positions, heights, labels, etc.
