Sequence order

The Special Properties of the status bar control are reflective of the demands of the underlying Windows API. Two rules apply in the case when you specify a multi-panel status bar:

You should, therefore, observe this specific sequence of properties when DISPLAYing or MODIFYing a status bar:

  1. PANEL-WIDTHS, followed by the array;
  2. PANEL-STYLE, followed by the array;
  3. PANEL-TEXT, followed by the array;
  4. GRIP.

So the syntax will look like this:

  PANEL-WIDTHS ( 5, 10, 20 ) 
  PANEL-STYLE ( 0, 2, 2 ) 
  PANEL-TEXT ( "Panel 1", "Panel 2", "Panel 3" )
