Shapefile Labels - or how to access the shapefile attribute database

I'm loading various shapefiles using ArcGIS for WPF and displaying them on a map (the mechanism for doing this is taken from the ArcGIS WPF runtime examples - see

I have a shapefile that contains Point information, and contained in it's attributes are the text labels that apply to those points. I cannot see how to access that information. I know the DBF file is being used as if I delete that file the shapefile will not render as it has no symbol information. Despite this, I cannot see when debugging the provided example how to access this information.

Obviously I could simply open the .dbf file manually but that seems awfully clunky. Does anyone have any help or pointers for me?

Many thanks in advance.
