ALP statusBar property
On read indicates if the status bar is shown by the ALPFrame window. On write shows/hides it.

Syntax and description

external.statusBar = value
variable = external.statusBar

The property is Boolean.


A design suggestion: As ALPFrame allows the application to use complex and structured menus, the status bar can be used as in many Windows applications - to show a hint text for the currently highlighted menu item (see MenuSelectHandler). However if you want something more than simple short text hint the status bar will not be enough and you can hide it (save place on the screen) and design the page to fit the the hint information in the appropriate area.
