StatusBar Control (Windows Forms)
The Windows Forms StatusBar control is used on forms as an area, usually displayed at the bottom of a window, in which an application can display various kinds of status information. StatusBar controls can have status-bar panels on them that display icons to indicate state, or a series of icons in an animation that indicate a process is working (such as Microsoft Word indicating that the document is being saved).
