You need to subclass the menu inorder to display details in status bar., Still better is go to
hosted on
and download the control they have developed [with source], it allows you to add small icons also on lect side of menus with some cool effects like tile a picture on back of menu window. Check it out [ i have been using it and it gives a cool and professional look to applications]

Hope that helps
