"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have to use an API to do this... Add the following to a MODULE:

   Declare Function SetParent Lib "user32" (ByVal hWndChild As Long, ByVal hWndNewParent As Long) As Long

Then you can do this:

   SetParent Combo1.hWnd, StatusBar1.hWnd

Remember to set the parent back to the form in the form unload event, otherwise, the application may crash.

   SetParent Combo1.hWnd, Form1.hWnd



Cheers!
