Status Bar

A special part of any wxFrame. Can be used to display messages. wxFrame offers two methods for use with status bars:

void CreateStatusBar()

creates a status bar on that window. Call it only once and in the constructor for your wxFrame.

void SetStatusText( wxString text )

sets the text in the status bar. May be called from everywhere in your wxFrame, e.g. when a menuitem was selected.

Use the status bar to display additional information.
