Hi.
I want to write, in a panel on the statusbar, two words. One in red, the other in blue.

StatusBar1.Panel[0].Text := 'HelloWorld' ;
"Hello" will be in red, and "World" will be in blue.

How can I do that ?

Thanks

Hello

Add statusbar on the form, and double click on the statusbar to add panel, in the first panel, set it's property sytle to psOwnerDraw, then write this code in the ondrawpanel event

procedure  TForm1.StatusBar1DrawPanel(StatusBar: TStatusBar;
   Panel: TStatusPanel;  const  Rect: TRect);
  begin
  with  StatusBar1.Canvas  do
     begin
      Font.Color := clRed;
      TextOut(Rect.left, Rect.top + 2, 'Hello' );
      Font.Color := clBlue;
      TextOut(Rect.left+30, Rect.top + 2, 'World' );
     end ;
  end ;


Best regards
