If _app.statusBar = true and you have the shell turned on.
Then the statusBar will appear at the bottom of your framewin when running
from a EXE.
So yes, if you are turning off the shell it will not appear.
I believe your form also has to be MDI=true. I don't quite remember since I
also use shell( false,false) which can't display the statusBar.
If I remember right, I think there is a status bar that someone wrote that
may help. Try the dUFLP.

Dear Andy

Thanks. But status bar does not appear in exe as it shows in IDE. When I
test in IDE it display the status message. Could this be because of
shell( false, false ) in statup program.
