Do you guys have any plans to implement a WPF status bar or is there a good way/example of using the toolbar control to imitate a status bar?

Thanks!

Ivan,
Thank you for your post and I do know about the Microsoft StatusBar, but I was wondering if Telerik has plans to release one that is similar to the ones in your WinForms controls. I would really like one that is themeable so that I can keep the look of my application uniformed.

Just wondering, but it sounds like there are no plans currently.

Hello Garry Clark,

We actually have not planned to develop such a control in Q2. However, there was a similar request and we added it to our Public Issue Tracking System as a new feature request so that other users can vote for this new control. You can follow the item at:

Hi Nick,

I see that there is no progress on the Status bar.

We are looking at converting from a competitive product for WPF to get some synergy/Look and feel between our Silverlight apps (these use Telerik Silverlight controls) and WPF apps.

I realise that in-browser apps don’t and should not use their own status bar but WPF desktop apps need a status bar.

Without a resolution to this problem we cannot build an application that ‘looks right’

All you major competitors either have status bar controls or panels that support theming and allow you to build themable status bars.

IF you do not intend to develop one then perhaps you could suggest how you would go about building one that does support your theme manager.

Regards

John

It's an oversight in the available controls.

I voted.

Here's a workaround using the RadToolBar to emulate a similar look:

 

<telerik:RadToolBar OverflowMode="Never" FlowDirection="RightToLeft" BorderThickness="0" Margin="0" Grid.Row="2" OverflowButtonVisibility="Hidden" GripVisibility="Hidden" IsEnabled="False" Orientation="Horizontal" HorizontalContentAlignment="Right">
    <StatusBarItem Margin="0" BorderThickness="0" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" HorizontalContentAlignment="Right">
        <TextBlock Text="{Binding CurrentUtcDateDisplayString}" HorizontalAlignment="Right" ></TextBlock>
    </StatusBarItem>
</telerik:RadToolBar>
