StatusBars, normally placed at the bottom of a window, are usually used to display read-only information. Sometimes they respond to mouse clicks.

The StatusBar component requires the distribution of MSCOMCTL.OCX (check Microsoft Windows Common Controls 6.0 (SP3) in the Components dialog). According to the help, the number of panels and their widths is controled via the panels collection. However, my VB 6.0 system does not display the "Panel tab of the Properties Page".

The trick is to not use the normal properties list, instead, you must right click and select Properties from the bottom of the menu. Then the rest of the options become available.

Alternatively, in the regular properties list, simply expand the (Custom) property.
