I have some trouble with the alignment of a statusbar and a picturebox that I have in an mdiform. In Visual Basic I place the statusbar below the picturebox. The are both aligned 'bottom'. When I run the program and do

statusbar.visible = false
statusbar.visible = true

I get the statusbar above the picturebox. How can I get it back below the picturebox?

Hi kpnkpn,

nigelrowe have the credit.

Here is the sample:

Private Sub status_Click(Index As Integer)
    If Index = 0 Then 'Show Status Bar
        StatusBar1.Visible = True
    Else 'Hide Status Bar
        StatusBar1.Visible = False
    End If
    StatusBar1.ZOrder 0
End Sub

ryancys, thanks for your sportsmanship
Best regards, Nigel

P.S.
Oh yes, the reason it didn't work for me was because I used...
StatusBar1.ZOrder = 0

which threw an error. In any case either of the two solutions works.

Hi!

Thankyou very much for the answers. Now I have another problem. Can I accept more than one comment as answer? It's because nigelrowe asked me if I had tried the zorder(). In fact I had. But I didn't get it to work. Then ryancys posted an example and that helped me. Hm... Which answer do you want me to accept?

It depends on you. Personally I would use...

.Format
..Order
...Send to Back
In design time, as this eliminates a line of code being run during runtime.

Yes there is a way to split the points, but I'm not sure how to do it, perhaps ryancys can shed some light on this.

Regards

kpnkpn, to split the points, you need to post a zero point question in community support http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt and give the url of this question and the distribution of points you require. Say 10 points each (or whatever you feel is appropriate).

No way I split the points that silly way. A waste of time. I give the points to the comment that helped me.
