This is probably a simple question, but I can't find the answer.
I use the StatusStripEx control on a Metro style form.
I want to have the following controls on it:
label1 | label2 | space | label3 | TrackbarEx | label4 | progressbar

I added the controls and all controls are at the right part of the status strip.
How can I get the first two labels at the left then a space that changes with the size of the form and then the rest of the controls?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Paul Meems,

Thank you for using syncfusion products.

We would like to let you know that in StatusBarEx alignment of StatusToolStrip Items cannot be done. For that if the items need to be aligned to left use notification items in the smart tag and the other for the Right Side alignment. 

Also the items in the StatusBarEx will get added next to the previous item and currently the items cannot be positioned manually to get a space between two items. A simple workaround to achieve this is to place a label with a forecolor same as the backcolor that gives the appearnce as if there is a space. Please have the sample from the attachments and let us know if you have any concerns.

Thanks for your reply and your sample. I managed to solve this by using StatusStripLabels which align to the left and StatusLabels which align to the right.
Not sure if this is the correct way, at least it is working ;)

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your update,

We would like to let you know that currently StatusStripEx has been designed in such a way that we have to use StatusStripLabel to align left and the other for right alignment . The method you have followed to achieve your requirement is correct.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.
