Hi,

I have an SDI application to show an Image. While showing the Image I want to display some Image details on the Status bar of my SDI frame. And I don`t want to display anything else on the Status bar.

How can I do this? I am new in MFC. Please help me.

Thanks in advance,
Jayan

Hi,
1.
In MainFrm.cpp under indicators[] comment the Indicator you don't want like this:
static UINT indicators[] =
{
      ID_SEPARATOR,           // status line indicator
      ID_STAT_IND,
//      ID_INDICATOR_CAPS,
//      ID_INDICATOR_NUM,
//      ID_INDICATOR_SCRL,
};

2.
define ID_STAT_IND in resource.rc using resource editor, like this:
#define ID_STAT_IND                     57610

3.
Add a global function to your project like this:
void
m_SetPaneText(int Where, char *What)
{
  CWnd* pStatusBarWnd;
   CWnd* pFrameWnd;
   CMainFrame* pFrame;
   CStatusBar* pStatusBar;

   pFrameWnd = AfxGetMainWnd();
   pFrame = STATIC_DOWNCAST( CMainFrame, pFrameWnd );

   pStatusBarWnd = pFrame->GetMessageBar();
   pStatusBar = STATIC_DOWNCAST( CStatusBar, pStatusBarWnd );
   pStatusBar->SetPaneText( Where, What );

}

4.
Call function where you want:
m_SetPaneText(1, "My text on Status Bar");

Good Luck!

Hi,
Thanks for the points. If it works fine, why a "B grade" for it?
