Display UNITS for an Edit Field in App Designer

App Designer edit fields (available from the Component Library) have an editable LABEL field, as well as the numerical input field. Currently, if the designer of the App wants to specify the Units which should be used for entering the data, the Label Field would have to include that information.
For example: WEIGHT OF THE GIZMO, KILOGRAMS ____ [where the __ represents the numerical field].
Is there a way to add a 2nd Label Field, so that the display in the app would have the Units after the numerical field, such as
WEIGHT OF THE GIZMO ____ ,KG [again, where the __ represents the numerical field]

Thanks! I never thought to use the "Label" component, as the icon appears to make labels which are borderless, or floating, on the background of the App. In fact, it does produce a rectangular block just like the Edit Field component. Someone in MatLab development might want to tweak this component Icon to reflect that reality!
Thanks once again for your answer!
