StatusBar

Overview

 

 

Nevron status bar overrides the standard Windows Forms one and extends its appearance greatly. A new NStatusBarPanel object is provided with additional customization properties like BackColor, ForeColor, ImageIndex and BorderStyle and embedded controls support.

Customizing Status Bar

As the NStatusBar is both INRendererProvider and INPaletteProvider its customization is very rich and easy to extend. Additional ImageList property is provided, which makes it more convenient to associate an image with a panel. You can also control the style of grip via the GriperStyle property.

 

The following example demonstrates how to create a status bar and customize its appearance:

C#
Copy Code
NStatusBar statusBar = new NStatusBar();
statusBar.Palette.Scheme = ColorScheme.LunaBlue;
statusBar.GriperStyle = GripperStyle.Lines;
Visual Basic
Copy Code
Dim statusBar As NStatusBar = New NStatusBar()
statusBar.Palette.Scheme = ColorScheme.LunaBlue
statusBar.GriperStyle = GripperStyle.Lines
Customizing Panels

Nevron User Interface exposes a new custom NStatusBarPanel object which derives from StatusBarPanel and provides lots of customization properties.

 

The following example demonstrates how to create a NStatusBar control and add panels to it:

C#
Copy Code
NStatusBar statusBar = new NStatusBar();
statusBar.ImageList = this.imageList1;

//create two panels and add them to the status bar
NStatusBarPanel panel = new NStatusBarPanel();
panel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle3D.Raised;
panel.BackColor = Color.Silver;
panel.ForeColor = Color.White;
statusBar.Panels.Add(panel);

//create a panel with autosize spring and a progressbar on it
panel = new NStatusBarPanel();
panel.AutoSize = StatusBarPanelAutoSize.Spring;
panel.Control = this.nProgressBar1;
panel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle3D.None;
statusBar.Panels.Add(panel);
Visual Basic
Copy Code
Dim statusBar As NStatusBar = New NStatusBar()
statusBar.ImageList = Me.imageList1

'create two panels and add them to the status bar
Di panel As NStatusBarPanel = New NStatusBarPanel()
panel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle3D.Raised
panel.BackColor = Color.Silver
panel.ForeColor = Color.White
statusBar.Panels.Add(panel)

'create a panel with autosize spring and a progressbar on it
panel = New NStatusBarPanel()
panel.AutoSize = StatusBarPanelAutoSize.Spring
panel.Control = Me.nProgressBar1
panel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle3D.None
statusBar.Panels.Add(panel)
Remarks
The NStatusBar control provides the same functionality as the standard Windows Forms one but looks much more professional and smooth(flicker-free).
