you will probably have to build yourself a fake status bar from other controls. you could use a real status bar and then switch it out with the fake one when you need to use the progress bar.

I think your best solution will be to add a panel to the staus bar and then, on top of that panel, place a progress bar control of the same size.  When not in use, you can hide the progress bar control and just use the panel of the status bar as normal.  I would suggest using a text type panel on the status bar and setting it's minimum width.

Hope this helps, has worked for me...

the reason that i would like it to be in the panel is that if the form is resized i would like it to still be in the same place

if you include the progress bar control in your resize code and resize it in the same manner as everything else, that should not be an issue.
