     ucStatusBar is a single file, self-subclassed StatusBar replacement control which supports complete customization per individual panel. Each panel supports the following independent properties: Text, Text Alignment (Left, Center, and Right), Auto/Manual Sizing, Editable (Dynamic Text Editing), Icons, Icon States (Enabled, Disabled), UseMaskColor, MaskColor, ForeColor, Font, ToolTipText, and Width. In addition the ucStatusBar as a whole supports BackColor, GripShapes (None, Classic Bars, XP Squares), Sizeable, and Theme Detection (Auto, Classic, Blue, HomeStead, and Metallic). ucStatusBar also provides dynamic runtime Control Binding to allow external controls (Progressbar, Droplist, etc) to be bound to individual panels. As a bonus, this submission also includes ucProgressbar, which is a self-subclassed Theme-Aware progress bar (modified from Mario Flores - Cool XP ProgressBar). So, If your project needs a modern lightweight StatusBar with dynamic runtime functionality without the overhead of dependencies, then this control might be just what the doctor ordered. Enjoy!!

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
