Currently there is no such control in our package but you can implemented it as a custom control. You have to inherit RadItem, RadControl
(the last needed for designing themes using the theme builder).
In fact, I've already done this for you and I'm attaching the sample project to show how. There is included also an office 2007 theme for the custom status bar control (StatusBarOffice2007Blue.xml).
Here's a screenshot of the form with the RadCustomStausBar :
Note that you can use Items
property to add any visual elements (form our framework) as "view changing controls" at design time as well as through the API at runtime. Also use the Text
property to set the text displayed in the notifications area.
You can further enhance the custom status bar by adding events, other properties and the behavior of the sizing grip.We'll be glad to know your feedback on this.
