Creating a Status Bar

Question:
How do I put a status bar at the bottom of an MDI parent form like in Word for Windows. Whenever I place a 3d panel on the form it is moved to the top.

Answer:
Set the Align property of the panel to "Align Bottom". Then, you can put text boxes or whatever into the panel, or just use the text property of the panel to display your status. VB4.0 makes the whole process a lot easier by adding a ToolBar and a StatusBar control to your control set.
