Delphi Language Details:
Using the StatusBar Component
Posted 19 years ago on 8/21/2002
Take Away: The StatusBar component allows you to write text to the status bar. This is one of the most common ways to display information to a user without stopping their work.


To do:

  1. Add a StatusBar component from the Win95 tab to the form.
  2. Change the SimplePanel property of the StatusBar to True.
  3. Add a button to our form (set its Caption to StatusBar).
  4. Add lines 2 and 3 from the code listing to the Click event of the button.
  5. Run and test the program.


  1. Notice we used two apostrophies in a row to represent one apostrophe in a literal string.
  2. Notice the use of dot notation in line 3 to set a property of an object.

Code Listing

1. procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
2. begin
3. StatusBar1.SimpleText := 'Isn''t this cool!';
4. end;
