I'm trying to set a border around a status bar panel but have not been able to do so. My code is simply:
            statusBar.Panels["Status"].Border = new ActiproSoftware.Drawing.SimpleBorder(
                ActiproSoftware.Drawing.SimpleBorderStyle.DoubleSolid, System.Drawing.Color.Blue);
That doesn't work. I also tried calling ResetBorder before and after this without success. What should I do to get the panel border working properly? Thanks.

Right now our themed-style statusbar renderers ignore the Border property. However if you are using the VisualStudio2002StatusBarRenderer, then the Border will show up.

Thanks for the info. Is this something that can be added to the next maintenance release? I love the look of the more modern status bar. Thanks again.
