How to resize StatusBar automatically....

How to resize StatusBar automatically....

How to resize StatusBar automatically....


in the parent window -- I have created a statusbar
class-control window as a child window, by calling the
win32 API "createwindowEx". it is working fine, however,
when the parent window is maximized, the statusbar is NOT
resized to fit the width of parent window and IT does not
stay at the bottom either. Can you please tell me how to
set it to resize the statusbar automatically.
thanks for the help.

RE: How to resize StatusBar automatically....

In parent windows notify the WM_SIZE message, then use MoveWindows to set the actual position of StatusBar.
