# comment under a tikz shape [closed]

I am trying to define my `tizk` shape style in a way that I can enter a text under the shape as a comment! For example in the uploaded picture, `(2 min)` is the comment I am talking about. Is there a way to do that? Ideally, I'd like to define the properties of this commnet in the `\tikzstyle`, so that I can easily use it in my shape. sample `\tikzstyle`:

``````\tikzstyle{block} = [
rectangle, draw,
fill=blue!20,
text width=7em,
text centered
]
``````

add `label=270:(2min)` to your options or make a variable. – percusse Dec 30 '12 at 18:54
@percusse: I guess in this case, `label=below:(2min)` would be more intuitive? – Jake Dec 30 '12 at 18:58
great, thanks you – N Nik Dec 30 '12 at 18:58
@NNik: No, they do exactly the same, but with the `270` option you have to remember that the angle starts on the right and counts counter-clockwise, to arrive at the bottom of the node at an angle of `270` degrees. Personally, I find `below` makes more sense when you want to position something below a node. – Jake Dec 30 '12 at 19:04
@Jake I agree. But it's also beneficial to know that all angles are allowed not just `below,above,left,right` etc. such that one does not try to shift the label manually. – percusse Dec 30 '12 at 19:08
