BackGround color of Status Bar

karhongkarhong Posts: 14Member
Hi, I'm able to set the text and the background color of the text for Status bar, but I'm not able to set the color for the 'seperator' of the status bar.
I have 3 column on the status bar, each of the text and background I'm able to set it but have no luck on the 'seperator'
I've done it by creating a custom status bar inherited from CStatusBar
By drawing it on DrawItem



CDC* pdc = CDC::FromHandle(pDIS->hDC);
pdc->FillSolidRect(&pDIS->rcItem, RGB(255,255,255));

pDIS->rcItem.left += 2;

Any ways to do this?

I wanted to change the whole status bar into white color RGB(255,255,255)
Any help would be appreciated.

    Or can I disable/remove the seperator between the item in the status bar ??
