Thank you for bringing this question up. Indeed, since RadStatusStrip
controls the visibility of its items internally, based on its size, hiding of items is a bit more difficult task than you would expect. In order to hide an item from the status bar you should temporary remove it from the StatusBar
's Items collection.
Please find attached a sample application that demonstrates the approach for your convenience. We do realize this task is currently bit more complicated than needed and we are going to improve it for one of the next versions of RadControls.
