You can add panels to a StatusBar control to display more than one type of information. The Insert method enables you to create a new StatusBarPanel and insert it at a specific location within the collection. The order in which panels are located in the StatusBar.StatusBarPanelCollection represents the order that panels are displayed within the StatusBar control. Panels are displayed from left to right starting with the first panel in the collection. The RightToLeft property of the StatusBar control does not change the order in which panels are displayed in the StatusBar. To add a panel to the end of the collection, use the Add method. To add a set of panels to the collection in a single operation, use the AddRange method.
