FormView and Statusbar

I've created a SDI MFC app with a statusbar and the View using the FormView class.

What I want to know is what's the best way to change the status bar text from within the Document cpp file?

I can change it from withing mainfrm.cpp using SetPaneText but can't do it from the document cpp file.

Yes, you can.

CMainFrame* pFrame= (CMainFrame*)AfxGetApp()->m_pMainWnd;
CStatusBar* pStatus =  &(pFrame->m_wndStatusBar);

I take it I can use a similar technique to access other variables in mainfrm.cpp such as m_wndtoolbar etc?
