how to retrieve text from IE status bar
As a part of my project i need to detect when the status bar of internet explorer shows the done message.GetWindowText gives only the title of the opened browser, however i need to detect the text in the status bar. Is there any API to do it and can it be implemented in visual basic?

Use Microsoft Spy++ to get the class name of the status bar control, and FindWindowEx() to programmatically find it within the IE window.
