Visual Basic: Windows Controls
A Panel object represents an individual panel in the Panels collection of a StatusBar control.
A Panel object can contain text and a bitmap which may be used to reflect the status of an application.
Use the Panels collection to retrieve, add, or remove an individual Panel object.
To change the look of a panel, change the properties of the Panel object. To modify the properties at design-time, you can change the properties of the Panel object in the Panels tab of the Properties Page. At run-time, you can change the Panel object properties in code.
