How to hide a Panel in Windows Forms StatusBar control? by PankajBanga
Posted: 11 Jun 03 (Edited 12 Jun 03)

You need to set the Width property of the Panel to 0 to hide it.

StatusBar1.Panels(0).Width = 0

Make sure MinWidth property of the Panel you are hiding is set to 0 and AutoSize property to None.

Example: The following code hides the first Panel in the StatusBar when a form loads.

Private Sub onFormLoad(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        StatusBar1.Panels(0).MinWidth = 0
        StatusBar1.Panels(0).AutoSize = StatusBarPanelAutoSize.None
        StatusBar1.Panels(0).Width = 0
End Sub

If you find the sample useful, please don't forget to Rate this and other samples. Your feedback will be much appreciated and valued and will keep me triggering. GOOD LUCK!!!
