I have a status bar with indicators as shown

static UINT indicators[] =
{
      ID_SEPARATOR,           // status line indicator
      ID_SEPARATOR,
      ID_SEPARATOR
};


My problem is that each Pane is way to long.
The 3rd pane cant even be seen unless I resize the window.

Is there anyway to cahgne the size of statusBar Panes?

I would like the pane layout to be like this
Pane 1 50% of satus bar length
Pane 2 25% of status bar length
Pane 3 25% of status bar length

+------------------------+------------+------------+
|Pane 1                  |  Pane 2    |  Pane 3    |
+------------------------+------------+------------+

CStatusBar has a member function SetPaneInfo
which takes the following arguments:

void SetPaneInfo( int nIndex, UINT nID, UINT nStyle, int cxWidth );

Parameters
nIndex   Index of the indicator pane whose style is to be set.
nID   New ID for the indicator pane.
nStyle   New style for the indicator pane.
cxWidth   New width for the indicator pane.

Since you can readily obtain the width of the status bar using the GetWindowRect function, obtaining the size fractions you need should be easy arithmetic.

I hope this helps.
