Showing progress bar in a status bar pane (3)

Assuming that most of the time when you are about to start a long operation, you want to show a short text in the leftmost plain-vanilla text pane, and immediately next to it a progress bar, a nice solution would be not to disturb the content of the status bar, create a progress control, initialize and advance it until operation is complete, then return the status bar to its initial state (idle text). This way, you do not have to add/remove panes in the status bar neither to resize or otherwise alter the panes, because usually all panes on a status bar are grouped rightmost, and the remaining space is used for regular text messages.

This can be best achieved by deriving a class from CStatusBar and adding a CProgressCtrl child in it. We can then add members to the new CStatusBarWithProgress to hide/show and control the progress bar.

All these prepared, you can now open up your frame class' header, and simply change CStatusBar with our new CStatusBarWithProgress. That's all.
