IOleInPlaceFrame::SetStatusText method (oleidl.h)

||The operation failed.|
||The specified pointer is invalid.|
||An unexpected error occurred.|
When switching between menus owned by the container and the in-place active object, the status bar text is not reflected properly if the object does not call the container's IOleInPlaceFrame::SetStatusText method. For example, if, during an in-place session, the user were to select the File menu, the status bar would reflect the action that would occur if the user selected this menu. If the user then selects the Edit menu (which is owned by the in-place object), the status bar text would not change unless the IOleInPlaceFrame::SetStatusText happened to be called. This is because there is no way for the container to recognize that one of the object's menus has been made active because all the messages that the container would trap are now going to the object.WM_MENUSELECT message and call IOleInPlaceFrame::SetStatusText, even if the object does not usually provide status information (in which case the object can just pass a NULL string for the requested status text).
