In computing, a status bar is a component (widget), often at the bottom of windows in a graphical user interface, displaying the current status of the application or the window. The status bar, which is often divided into different segments, can contain text, clickable elements, buttons, pop-up menus, and so on. Status bars are also used in online surveys to indicate the position the respondent has reached in the questionnaire. Therefore a status bar may also be called a progress bar.
