Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Style property, the StatusBarDrawItemEventHandler delegate, the StatusBarDrawItemEventArgs class, the StatusBarPanelStyle enumeration and the StatusBarDrawItemEventArgs.Panel property. To run the example, paste the following code in a form. Call the InitializeStatusBarPanels method in the form's constructor or Load method.

StatusBar^ StatusBar1;
void InitializeStatusBarPanels()
{
   StatusBar1 = gcnew StatusBar;
   
   // Create two StatusBarPanel objects.
   StatusBarPanel^ panel1 = gcnew StatusBarPanel;
   StatusBarPanel^ panel2 = gcnew StatusBarPanel;
   
   // Set the style of the panels.  
   // panel1 will be owner-drawn.
   panel1->Style = StatusBarPanelStyle::OwnerDraw;
   
   // The panel2 object will be drawn by the operating system.
   panel2->Style = StatusBarPanelStyle::Text;
   
   // Set the text of both panels to the same date string.
   panel1->Text = System::DateTime::Today.ToShortDateString();
   panel2->Text = System::DateTime::Today.ToShortDateString();
   
   // Add both panels to the StatusBar.
   StatusBar1->Panels->Add( panel1 );
   StatusBar1->Panels->Add( panel2 );
   
   // Make panels visible by setting the ShowPanels 
   // property to True.
   StatusBar1->ShowPanels = true;
   
   // Associate the event-handling method with the DrawItem event 
   // for the owner-drawn panel.
   StatusBar1->DrawItem += gcnew StatusBarDrawItemEventHandler( this, &Form1::DrawCustomStatusBarPanel );
   this->Controls->Add( StatusBar1 );
}


// Draw the panel.
void DrawCustomStatusBarPanel( Object^ sender, StatusBarDrawItemEventArgs^ e )
{
   
   // Draw a blue background in the owner-drawn panel.
   e->Graphics->FillRectangle( Brushes::AliceBlue, e->Bounds );
   
   // Create a StringFormat object to align text in the panel.
   StringFormat^ textFormat = gcnew StringFormat;
   
   // Center the text in the middle of the line.
   textFormat->LineAlignment = StringAlignment::Center;
   
   // Align the text to the left.
   textFormat->Alignment = StringAlignment::Far;
   
   // Draw the panel's text in dark blue using the Panel 
   // and Bounds properties of the StatusBarEventArgs object 
   // and the StringFormat object.
   e->Graphics->DrawString( e->Panel->Text, StatusBar1->Font, Brushes::DarkBlue, RectangleF(e->Bounds.X,e->Bounds.Y,e->Bounds.Width,e->Bounds.Height), textFormat );

Remarks

The DrawItem event occurs when a visual aspect of an owner-drawn StatusBarPanel changes. A StatusBarDrawItemEventArgs specifies the Graphics object to use to draw the panel, the Rectangle object in which to draw the panel, the panel identification number, state information about the panel, and the panel to draw. You can use the data provided by this class in an event handler for the DrawItem event to create custom-drawn panels in your application's StatusBar control.
