About Customizing the Status Bar with MODEMACRO

The status bar can provide important information without interrupting the work flow.
You can use the MODEMACRO system variable to display, in the status bar, most data
known to the application. With its calculation, decision, and editing facilities you
can compose the status bar to your precise specifications.

NOTE:The MODEMACRO system variable is not supported on Mac OS.

The calculated value of the MODEMACRO system variable controls the user-defined area
on the status bar, leftmost section. As the value of the MODEMACRO system variable
changes, the controls on the status bar move to the right. The maximum number of characters
displayed on the status bar in the user-defined area is 240. Beyond 240 characters,
the text displayed in the status bar is truncated

If you set MODEMACRO to the null string by entering a period (.), the standard status
bar is displayed. Its value is not saved.
