Info at bottom of mdiform.


I have a mdiform and I need to show info at the bottom of the mdiform such as user login, current date and time.

What control should I use, and how to do it?

Thank you.

Here is more detailed info about the StatusStrip:

If you want to show time, you will also need a timer control to update the time. Add the timer, and set interval = 1000 (1 second) and enabled = true. Then add this to the timer.tick event handler:

Add another toolstripstatuslabel.

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        ToolStripStatusLabel2.Text = Now
    End Sub

For the login name you could use
Preferrably a statusstrip, set dock = bottom. Add a toolstripstatuslabel, and set it's text:

ToolStripStatusLabel1.Text="my user"
