Using a VFP-Based wwStatusBar Class
To work around this problem, I decided to ditch the ActiveX control and write a new VFP class that simulates a StatusBar using VFP code. The control can render in XP style, in 'classic' style, and in a modified classic style that mixes XP and classic styles. It doesn't mimic all the functionality of the ActiveX control, but implements most of the important functionality in an easy to use container class. Figure 2shows a VFP application running with the wwStatusBar control in XP themes mode.
