<xsd:attribute name="hideStatusBarDisplay" type="xsf:xdYesNo" use="optional" ></xsd:attribute>


The name of the role for the current user is displayed in the status bar. If the role of a user is changed programmatically, the status bar is updated.

The value of the hideStatusBarDisplay attribute is "no" by default. If the attribute is not included in the roles element, therefore, the role of the current user is displayed in the status bar. The hideStatusBarDisplay attribute must be included in the roles element and its value must be set to "yes" to prevent the role for the current user from being displayed in the status bar.

There is no mechanism in the user interface of InfoPath for changing the hideStatusBarDisplay attribute. To add this attribute to the roles element or to change its value, the form definition file (.xsf) of a form must be edited manually.


The following is an example of the hideStatusBarDisplay attribute as it is used in the roles element:

<xsf:roles initiator="A" default="C" hideStatusBarDisplay="yes">
   <xsf:role name="A" />
   <xsf:role name="B" />
   <xsf:role name="C" />

      <xsf:getUserNameFromData dataObject="catalog" select="/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:UserA" memberOf="B" />
      <xsf:userName name="domain\username1" memberOf="A" />
      <xsf:userName name="domain\username2" memberOf="B" />
      <xsf:group name="domain\groupname1" memberOf="C" />
