Statusstrip weird behaviour

Hi all,

(VS 2005 Pro, XP) I'm trying to place a statusstrip control on a window
such that it acts like a statusstrip (!).

Every time I try this, no matter what I do, I find that when I maximise
other containers on the form to fill its' available surface, then these
other controls slip behind the statusstrip to fill ALL the form's
surface as if the statusstrip didn't even exist!. Statustrip dock
property is bottom, other controls all on a panel with dock property
fill.

What am I doing wrong here? Do I need to place it into some special
kind of container? Why isn't this just handled automatically, ie why
doesn't VS treat this thing as a special area of the form's border and
disallow flow into this area?

Perplexed, HYCH,
Rob

hi,

1. as long as the statusstrip is the *top most* control in the form, theres
no prob both in MDI and SDI.

2. If 1 is not the case (put on top of another control, for example), ya hav
to use "toolstripcontainer" first.

hope this helps

Try selecting the panel and use the menu to BringToFront the panel.
I've have similar problems and if you experiment with bringing control
to the front, that might solve your problem.
