I have a progress bar on the right hand side of the status bar and now I want to put some text just to the left to indicate what is "progressing".  When I put a CStatic element there though updating it with a SetWindowText has no effect.  What do I need to do?

You may need to force the status bar to update.

eg .. something like this...

void CMyMainFrame::UpdateStatusBar () {
      CStatusBar* pStatusBar = (CStatusBar*)GetMessageBar();
      if (! pStatusBar) return;
      pStatusBar->SendMessage(WM_IDLEUPDATECMDUI); // Include ::AfxPRIV.H.
      pStatusBar->UpdateWindow();
}

Call this after setting the status bar text.
