Hi!

  I have an application which doing some data loading for a few minutes. During this process I would like to show some information on status bar to let user see progress of loading( somethink like Displaying name of current loaded item and setting index of CProgreesBar). I have a loop which is doing all loading and I tried to use CStatusBar::SetWindowText and CStatusBarCtrl::SetText functions to display name of current item on status bar but it was empty. I would grateful for any help.

After you set the text, you'll need to let the operating system have some time to process the painting for the status control.

The best way to do that is to use a function like this:

BOOL TWaitingMessages::Pump()
{
      MSG msg;

      while (::PeekMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0, PM_NOREMOVE))
      {
            if (!AfxGetApp()->PumpMessage())
            {
                  ::PostQuitMessage(0);
                  return FALSE;
            }
      }

      LONG idle = 0;
/* If using MFC
      while (AfxGetApp()->OnIdle(idle++))
            ;
*/
      return TRUE;
}

Then right after, you use CStatusBar::SetWindowText(), make a call to TWaitingMessage::Pump() and check if the return value is FALSE. If so, then the user wants to quit.
