Excerpt of article text...

How do we add a statusbar to a window?

This article will explain how to make a nice class for a statusbar in REALbasic. Inside the class, all the declares will handle the low level functions calls and give you, as the user of this class, a nice interface to quickly implement a statusbar inside any REALbasic window.

Just launch REALbasic with a new project and create a new class. Call it "Statusbar". The first part of the article will add all the methods to this class and the second part will show how to use it.

Before we start adding methods, just create a new property, "handle as integer", inside the class. This property will store the ID of the statusbar which we get from the operating system.
