Thank you for this great work....but when I have horizontal scrolling text running in Win98 the scroll-speed is very slow but if you continously move the mouse, the scroll speed is faster and smoother...so I thought what if I place the whole XStatusBar in it's own thread...but don't know how..have been trying some approaches but failed...could you help me there??
Just what I needed for a real time updating status bar. I used ability to change the background colors to alert the user to changes of state in my system. Again, thanks for taking the time to post this code.
