1. As per the MSCUI, in which case format lables should appear in application ? Title case / Sentence case. Is there any reference document is there for this ?

2. In UI, Colons should not appear between the Field label and the Field control,  Am I right ?

There is no specific CUI guidance specifying uppercase or lower case for the display of labels. There is for the display of patient names, but not labels. In the Patient Banner guidance document, there is some guidance (Guidance PAB-0046 “Give more emphasis to the value text style relative to the label text style”) regarding the relative visual emphasis between a label and its corresponding data value, but not specific text styles. Please also note that the illustrations in the document only indicate an example style treatment for labels (italicised and in normal style), versus actual guidance. For more general information regarding labels, you may wish to refer to the Windows user experience interaction guidelines found here.
