StatusStrip item help...

Using VS2005 (.NET 2.0), VB.NET,
I have a windows forms application. I have a StatusStrip containing a
ToolStripStatus Labal and a ToolStripProgre ssBar.

I want to force the status label to behave like it's docked to "Fill"
inside the StatusStrip and force the progress bar to behave like it's
docked to "Right" inside the StatusStrip. Unfortunately I do not see
any way to accomplish this using just one StatusStrip control.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to get the desired arrangement
using just one (1) StatusStrip control? (I feel like I'm missing
something easy)

Set the Spring property for the label to True.
This did not work... the left edge of the progress bar still floats to
the left of the text in the ToolStripStatus Label... are there any
other properties that need to be set in conjunction with Spring it to
perform as advertised?
Try this:
Click StatusStrip and go to properties window. Click "items" and click
on the item to adjust all the location / alignment or other property
related things of items inside StatusStrip control. (eg: Progressbar,
StatusLabel)
Especially look at "layout" section of these items' properties which
are located under StatusStrip -property window -"items".

Thanks for your suggestions...
Yes, I know how to access the properties of the StatusStrip and have
toyed with all the Layout properties prior to posting here. What I
found is that there is no way to control the layout of multiple
toolstrip elements in the way I described in my original question -
i.e. a status label glued/docked/archored (whatever) to the left side
of the form and a progress bar glued/docked//archored (whatever) to
the right side of the form.
Am I missing something simple? If so, tell me what settings you are
using to accomplish the layout described above...

I built a StatusStrip with two items:

Label, with Spring = True
ProgressBar

The ProgressBar is aligned on the right and the label occupies the
rest of the space.

I am confused by your statement "the left edge of the progress bar
still floats to the left of the text in the ToolStripStatus Label". *If
the label appears first in the list of items, I don't see how the
progress bar can be to the left of it.- Hide quoted text -

Thanks Jack - you got it!
The only other setting I needed was set the ToolStripProgre ssbar's
Alignment=Right .
Problem solved - thanks for all the responses!

Hi, Winforms has the new StatusStrip control that replaces StatusBar in 1.1. I've looked high and low but can't seem to find how to get separators (|) in my status bar, eg Info1 | Info2 | Info3 | Info4 where Infos 1 to 4 are StatusLabels.

There MUST be a simple solution for this! Every windows application shows some extra information in the status bar for the selected menu entry when the user browses around the application menu.
