Q.  win32: easy status control

A.  Using the official StatusBar control is a pain.  Here are other ways that look fine:

1.  Static Text
Its called "static" but you can change it

2.  An Edit Control with Read Only = true
Setting it to read only stops the user from entering text (of course)
but it also grays it so looks pretty much like a status bar.
