Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the StatusBarPanelBorderStyle enumeration and how to handle the PanelClick event.

To run the example, paste the following code in a form. Call the InitializeStatusBarPanels method in the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

internal:
   System::Windows::Forms::StatusBar^ statusBar1;

private:
   void InitializeStatusBarPanels()
   {
      
      // Create a StatusBar control.
      statusBar1 = gcnew StatusBar;
      
      // Dock the status bar at the top of the form. 
      statusBar1->Dock = DockStyle::Top;
      
      // Set the SizingGrip property to false so the user cannot 
      // resize the status bar.
      statusBar1->SizingGrip = false;
      
      // Associate the event-handling method with the 
      // PanelClick event.
      statusBar1->PanelClick += gcnew StatusBarPanelClickEventHandler( this, &Form1::statusBar1_PanelClick );
      
      // Create two StatusBarPanel objects to display in statusBar1.
      StatusBarPanel^ panel1 = gcnew StatusBarPanel;
      StatusBarPanel^ panel2 = gcnew StatusBarPanel;
      
      // Set the width of panel2 explicitly and set
      // panel1 to fill in the remaining space.
      panel2->Width = 80;
      panel1->AutoSize = StatusBarPanelAutoSize::Spring;
      
      // Set the text alignment within each panel.
      panel1->Alignment = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
      panel2->Alignment = HorizontalAlignment::Right;
      
      // Display the first panel without a border and the second
      // with a raised border.
      panel1->BorderStyle = StatusBarPanelBorderStyle::None;
      panel2->BorderStyle = StatusBarPanelBorderStyle::Raised;
      
      // Set the text of the panels. The panel1 object is reserved
      // for line numbers, while panel2 is set to the current time.
      panel1->Text = "Reserved for important information.";
      panel2->Text = System::DateTime::Now.ToShortTimeString();
      
      // Set a tooltip for panel2
      panel2->ToolTipText = "Click time to display seconds";
      
      // Display panels in statusBar1 and add them to the
      // status bar's StatusBarPanelCollection.

      statusBar1->Panels->Add( panel2 );
      
      // Add the StatusBar to the form.
      this->Controls->Add( statusBar1 );
   }

   // If the user clicks the status bar, check the text of the 
   // StatusBarPanel.  If the text equals a short time string,
   // change it to long time display.

   {
      if ( e->StatusBarPanel->Text == System::DateTime::Now.ToShortTimeString() )
      {
         e->StatusBarPanel->Text = System::DateTime::Now.ToLongTimeString();
