# StatusStrip Control

The Windows Forms StatusStrip control is used on forms as an area, usually displayed at the bottom of a window, in which an application can display various kinds of status information. StatusStrip controls typically have ToolStripStatusLabel controls on them that display text or icons to indicate state, or a ToolStripProgressBar that graphically displays the completion state of a process.
