Creating a status bar E-mail
User Rating: / 208
PoorBest 

Java does not have a built-in StatusBar class in Swing. You need to create your own status bar. The following class creates a simple status bar using JLabel. You can improve it based on your needs:

public class StatusBar extends JLabel {
    
    /** Creates a new instance of StatusBar */
    public StatusBar() {
        super();
        super.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(10016));
        setMessage("Ready");
    }
    
    public void setMessage(String message) {
        setText(" "+message);        
    }        
}

You can use this status bar in your programs as follows:

statusBar = new StatusBar();
getContentPane().add(statusBar, java.awt.BorderLayout.SOUTH);

Note that we added the status bar at the bottom of the frame using BorderLayout.

You can also change the message on the status bar using setMessage method.
