What are the 3 types of software?

You want more from a status bar than what comes natively with VFP.
There is a status bar Active-x control, but it isn’t the most user friendly, nor is the documentation all that swell.  Par for the Active-x course.  I wanted to use one in an app I’m developing and also, there have been several questions posted in this forum on status bars.
So if you just want to use a status bar on your form, drop one on there, right click and select ‘SBarCtrl Properties’.  Click on Panels and make your panels look how you like.  You can add text, key status (CTRL, CAPS, etc.).  ToolTips, pictures and so on.
Fine.  That’s all well and good, but other than keyboard status, folks usually want different messages displayed, or other GUI things.  Programmatically.  That’s what this FAQ is about.
For a complete demo form with all the graphics and user interface, go here
Scroll down until you get to ‘StatusBar Active-x Demo’ and download ‘’
I saved the path names so it will unzip to a folder named C:\vfp_source\statusbar and the graphics will unzip to C:\vfp_source\statusbar\graphics.  From the IDE, run either the form or the program code.  You will see several buttons, a radio control, a couple spinners, and a text box with the status bar at the bottom.
The buttons run some demo code.  The radio control selects the auto-sizing of the panels (play with that a little, you’ll see how it works).  The first spinner selects which panel to work with and the second adjusts the size of the selected panel.  The text box changes the text of the selected panel.
One thing to note on adding the statusbar control, as foxwizard pointed out, is that if the form’s windowstate is set to 2, the control will remain at wherever the bottom of the form was at design time.  So if the form runs as maximized, the control could be floating somewhere in the middle of the form.  To cure that, in the form’s Init event, add the following line:es “statusBarControl” is the name of the component Microsoft StatusBar Control 6.0 which I have on my form.
Hmm I see statusBarControl field when I get the autocomplete list of available functions/components/procedures in the current form context.

The properties of the StatusBar control can be set on the General tab, as shown in Figure 4.13.The Style and SimpleText properties of the toolbar determine the appearance of the control at runtime. The Style property can have one of two values: Simple or Normal. When the Style property is Simple, only one panel of the StatusBar is visible, and the text in the SimpleText property is displayed. When the Style property is Normal, the StatusBar appears with multiple panels.The use of ToolTips is available to you with the StatusBar control. Behavior of ToolTips for the StatusBar is similar to the behavior of ToolTips for the ToolBar control (discussed earlier in “Using the ToolBar Control”).An individual ToolTipText property is available for each panel of the StatusBar control. When the ShowTips property of the StatusBar is set to True and the user rests the mouse pointer over a panel in the StatusBar, the ToolTipText is displayed at the mouse pointer.Several other Panel properties affect the appearance of each panel. The Alignment property determines whether text displayed in a panel is left-justified, right-justified, or centered. The MinWidth property specifies the minimum width of a panel. The ScaleMode of the container on which the StatusBar is located determines the units for the MinWidth. Each panel also has a Width property that determines the starting width of the object.The AutoSize property of a panel can also have an impact on its width. This property can have the following values:
