StatusStrip Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Represents a Windows status bar control.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

'Declaration
<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
<ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch)> _
Public Class StatusStrip
	Inherits ToolStrip
'Usage
Dim instance As StatusStrip

/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch) */ 
public class StatusStrip extends ToolStrip
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch) 
public class StatusStrip extends ToolStrip

Although StatusStrip replaces and extends the StatusBar control of previous versions, StatusBar is retained for both backward compatibility and future use if you choose.

A StatusStrip control displays information about an object being viewed on a Form, the object's components, or contextual information that relates to that object's operation within your application. Typically, a StatusStrip control consists of ToolStripStatusLabel objects, each of which displays text, an icon, or both. The StatusStrip can also contain ToolStripDropDownButton, ToolStripSplitButton, and ToolStripProgressBar controls.

The default StatusStrip has no panels. To add panels to a StatusStrip, use the ToolStripItemCollection.AddRange method, or use the StatusStrip Items Collection Editor at design time to add, remove, or reorder items and modify properties. Use the StatusStrip Tasks Dialog Box at design time to run common commands.

The following code example demonstrates a StatusStrip with various common properties set.

Public Class Form1
