Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

member Text : string with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.String

The text displayed in the panel.

This property represents the text that is displayed when the Style property is set to Text. You can use this property to display information about your application in a StatusBar control. For example, you can use the Text property to display Help information when the user moves the mouse over a menu or to display the name and location of a file that is opened in an application. To align the text within a StatusBarPanel, use the Alignment property.

The following code example creates a StatusBar control on a form and adds two StatusBarPanel objects. The first StatusBarPanel, named panel1, displays status text for an application. The second StatusBarPanel, named panel2, displays the current date and uses the ToolTipText property of the StatusBarPanel class to display the current time. The example uses the ShowPanels property to ensure that the panels are displayed instead of a standard panel, and it uses the Panels property to access the Add method of the StatusBar.StatusBarPanelCollection to add the panels to the StatusBar. The example also uses the AutoSize, BorderStyle, ToolTipText, and Text properties to initialize the StatusBarPanel objects. This example assumes that the method defined in the example is defined and called from the constructor of a Form.
