Chapter 21. Using ActiveX Controls > Using the StatusBar Control

Using the StatusBar Control

You can use the StatusBar control to quickly and easily add professional-looking status bars to your forms, as shown at the bottom of the frmCalendar form in Figure 21.11. The StatusBar in the figure has six panels; the first two have been configured to display the current date and time, and the last three display the status of the Caps, Num, and Ins keys.

You can set properties for the StatusBar control as a whole or for the individual panels (see Figure 21.13). The Style property specifies whether you want the status bar to include multiple panels or only a single panel. The SimpleText property is used only for single-panel status bars; it specifies the text in the panel. Finally, the MousePointer property lets you select the type of mouse pointer that appears when it's placed over the StatusBar control.
