Putting a ProgressBar on a StatusBar

Both the ProgressBar and the StatusBar appear to be welcome additions to the VB controls set. But, while I have had to create each of the various built-in StatusBar styles at least once in the past, I have never created a roll-your-own status bar without a roll-your-own progress bar in at least one panel. And yet, I can’t figure out how to put the new VB4 ProgressBar in a panel of the StatusBar!Is it possible that these two controls can’t be nested?

I would guess what you are actually seeing is the ProgressBar next to a StatusBar, both of which are in a picturebox or a panel. That’s basically how they are probably doing it, and it’s how I would recommend you do it. It’s a similar thing to putting a drop list in a toolbar. You have to space them out so they all fit together.
