How can I show a status on a form like IE does with and embedded web object

form1.web1.document

Open in new window



I want to be able to show the status like it does when you are inside foxpro, this may be an easy one, but I never could get it to work in a tex box on a form. I would like to show the status like IE does at the bottom of the IE window.

Add a Timer, have this Timer call a method or procedure. Get the results and display it on a FoxPro form.
You can have the status update every second or minute or anytime you wish.

If you have a lot process, you can call it also by a variable.

oStatusbar.status.Value="Connecting ..."
   *do connection here
oStatusbar.status.Value="Updating ..."
   *do updates here
oStatusbar.status.Value="Done"

what i am looking for are the messages that IE displays as pages are loading, like the page address "waiting for img.jpg etc etc" and the "Done" at the end, I know I can push my own statuses to a text box, but I want to read the messages that IE naturally displays.

I guess you have to make your own status bar. As I understand, the status bar is built on the webbrowser control in IE the same as the Back and Forward buttons are.
