Visio 2013 VBA - How to create a status bar message

I would like to generate a message in the status bar in Visio.
"hello world" for example.
What is the code to do that?

I've been playing with it for half an hour, and can't figure it out. The Visio 2003 Developer's Survival Pack book that I have says that the StatusBars object model is "obsolete", but doesn't say if there's a different way to get at the status bar.

Anyway, I've never customized the Visio status bar, and something in the back of my mind says; "it can't be done", but I really am not 100% sure that it is impossible.

Hi,

As far as I know Statusbar is not a property of the Visio.Application unlike in Excel.

Status bar --that screen element that exists in EVERY PROGRAM IN THE UNIVERSE-- is obsolete?   Jeepers.  Is nothing sacred?1!!???

Thanks for the insight and help.

"Obsolete" was in reference to modifying the Status bar programmatically, not that the bar itself is obsolete.
