public enum class StatusBarPanelAutoSize
public enum StatusBarPanelAutoSize
type StatusBarPanelAutoSize = 
Public Enum StatusBarPanelAutoSize
Inheritance
StatusBarPanelAutoSizeStatusBarPanelAutoSizeStatusBarPanelAutoSizeStatusBarPanelAutoSize

Fields

Contents Contents Contents Contents 3

The width of the StatusBarPanel is determined by its contents.

None None None None 1

The StatusBarPanel does not change size when the StatusBar control resizes.

Spring Spring Spring Spring 2

The StatusBarPanel shares the available space on the StatusBar (the space not taken up by other panels whose AutoSize property is set to None or Contents) with other panels that have their AutoSize property set to Spring.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the StatusBarPanelAutoSize 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->ShowPanels = true;
      statusBar1->Panels->Add( panel1 );
      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.
   void statusBar1_PanelClick( Object^ /*sender*/, StatusBarPanelClickEventArgs^ e )
   {
      if ( e->StatusBarPanel->Text == System::DateTime::Now.ToShortTimeString() )
      {
         e->StatusBarPanel->Text = System::DateTime::Now.ToLongTimeString();
      }
   }
