    Status bar

    I have searched the forum for answers to my question, but it seems that its still now working, even with the answers other people already received.
    I use Dev-C++
    Ive made sure it loads

    #include <commctrl.h>
    #define IDC_MAIN_STATUS	1001
    HWND hStatus;
    int statwidths[] = {100, -1};
    hStatus = CreateWindowEx(NULL, STATUSCLASSNAME, NULL,  WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE, 0, 0, 0, 0, 
    hwnd, (HMENU)IDC_MAIN_STATUS, GetModuleHandle(NULL), NULL);
    SendMessage(hStatus, SB_SETPARTS, 3, (LPARAM) statwidths);
    SendMessage(hStatus, SB_SETTEXT, 0, (LPARAM) "some text 1");
    But it doesnt show the status bar at all.Ive used error checks, but it seems that its all running fine?Can someone help me on this?

    I actually even think it isnt compiling...altough there are no error messages.When i change something in my program, it doesnt appear on screen..?

    Try this:

    SendMessage(hStatus, SB_SETPARTS, 2, (LPARAM) statwidths);
    This should work, I hope.
