    I am having a problem on a RadStatusStrip.  The strip has a RadWaitingBarElement I use as a throbber, and also a RadLabelElement to show text.  When the text is too long to fit in the RadStatusStrip, the text disappears.  I attempted to find an answer in this thread:


    I downloaded StatusStripVP.zip, added my RadStatusStrip as a second strip on the form, and when I click the Change Status Message Text, the text disappears from my status strip.  If I resize the form, the text disappears from BOTH status strips.

    Please see modified attached project that illustrates this behavior.

    Oops!  It didn't allow my zip file to be attached.  Please advise how I can get the zipped solution to you.

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for writing. 

    It is allowed to attached images in forum threads. If you need to provide a sample project, feel free to submit a support ticket.

    As to the question at hand, in order to see the long RadLabelElement, it is necessary to set the RadStatusStrip.LayoutStyle property to RadStatusBarLayoutStyle.Overflow. Additional information regarding this property is available here: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/forms-and-dialogs/statusstrip/radstatusbar-properties
    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
