StatusBarPanelAutoSize Enumeration

Specifies how a StatusBarPanel on a StatusBar control behaves when the control resizes.

enum StatusBarPanelAutoSize

Remarks

This enumeration is used by the StatusBarPanel.AutoSize property. The AutoSize property specifies how a StatusBarPanel is autosized on a StatusBar control.

Members

Member name Description
Contents The width of the StatusBarPanel is determined by its contents.
None The StatusBarPanel does not change size when the StatusBar control resizes.
Spring The StatusBarPanel shares the available space on the StatusBar (the space not taken up by other panels whose AutoSize property is set to StatusBarPanelAutoSize.None or StatusBarPanelAutoSize.Contents) with other panels that have their AutoSize property set to StatusBarPanelAutoSize.Spring.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following code example demonstrates how to use the SizingGrip, Dock, Alignment, Width, StatusBarPanelAutoSize, and StatusBarPanelBorderStyle members and how to handle the PanelClick event. To run the example, paste the following code in a form. Call the InitializeStatusBarPanels method in the form's constructor or Load method.

[Visual Basic] 

    Friend WithEvents statusBar1 As System.Windows.Forms.StatusBar

    Private Sub InitializeStatusBarPanels()

        ' Create a StatusBar control.
        statusBar1 = New StatusBar

        ' Dock the status bar at the top of the form. 
        statusBar1.Dock = DockStyle.Top

        ' Set the SizingGrip property to false so the user cannot 
        ' resize the status bar.
        statusBar1.SizingGrip = False

        ' Create two StatusBarPanel objects to display in statusBar1.
        Dim panel1 As New StatusBarPanel
        Dim panel2 As New StatusBarPanel

        ' Set the width of panel2 explicitly and set
        ' panel1 to fill in the remaining space.
        panel2.Width = 80
        panel1.AutoSize = StatusBarPanelAutoSize.Spring

        ' Set the text alignment within each panel.
        panel1.Alignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left
        panel2.Alignment = HorizontalAlignment.Right

        ' Display the first panel without a border and the second
        ' with a raised border.
        panel1.BorderStyle = StatusBarPanelBorderStyle.None
        panel2.BorderStyle = StatusBarPanelBorderStyle.Raised

        ' Set the text of the panels. The panel1 object is reserved
        ' for line numbers, while panel2 is set to the current time.
        panel1.Text = "Reserved for important information."
        panel2.Text = System.DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString

        ' Set a tooltip for panel2
        panel2.ToolTipText = "Click time to display seconds"

        ' Display panels in statusBar1 and add them to the
        ' status bar's StatusBarPanelCollection.
        statusBar1.ShowPanels = True
        statusBar1.Panels.Add(panel1)
        statusBar1.Panels.Add(panel2)

        ' Add the StatusBar to the form.
