    SendMessage()

    Code:
    SendMessage(hStatus, SB_SETTEXT, 1, (LPARAM) FileName);
    Can someone please tell me how to get a space " " before FileName. as it shows to close to the edge of the status bar.

    char *NewFileName = new char[strlen(FileName)+2];

    strcpy (NewFileName, " ");
    strcat (NewFileName, FileName);
    strcpy (FileName, NewFileName);
    delete [] NewFileName;
