"titles" of controls, constants and indicators can be set through their labels.

 

Right click and either select "show label", or "properties" and then change the label there.

R-click an element in the cluster and Visible items -> Captions, and see what happens. Smiley Happy

I am always learning something in the Forums!

 

I understand the Cluster labeling (I do it all the time, myself), but I don't understand how the O.P.'s "previous Test Engineer" or Artem.SPb created the "above-the-Array" "column labels" that show up in the Grey boxes.  When I've wanted to do something like this (usually because I didn't want to see the Cluster Labels on each Cluster Line, but wanted a single Label Strip at the top), I made a Text Decoration with the Labels and then "grouped" it with the Array as a Custom Control (as Artem.SPb suggested), but that doesn't seem to be what was done here.

 

What's the New Trick?

As Artem.SPb said, it's a customized control with 'label' decorations (given a background) placed where desired.

Hi  

I try it and nothing happened 

I don't think that  the title is related to cluster

If it is, indeed, a Custom Control, then you need to find the .ctl (Control) file that defines it, which is where the Decoration that sits on top of the Array of Clusters and names the Columns is defined.
