Do you mean the toolbar that is typically at the top of the screen or the message bar at the bottom of the screen?

You can turn the 'Working...' message off with system.suppress_working command.
SYSTEM.SUPPRESS_WORKING examples
Assume that you want to have the form filled with data when the operator enters the form. The following
When-New-Form-Instance trigger will prevent the unwanted updates that would normally occur when
you fill the blocks with data.
:System.Suppress_Working := 'TRUE';
Go_Block ('DEPT');
Execute_Query;
Go_Block ('EMP');
Execute_Query;
Go_Block ('DEPT');
:System.Suppress_Working := 'FALSE';


You can also show your own message.
MESSAGE examples
/*
** Built-in: MESSAGE
** Example: Display several messages to the command line
** throughout the progress of a particular
** subprogram. By using the NO_ACKNOWLEDGE parameter,
** we can avoid the operator's having to
** acknowledge each message explicitly.
*/

PROCEDURE Do_Large_Series_Of_Updates IS
BEGIN
   Message ('Working... (0%)', NO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
/*
** Long-running update statement goes here
*/
   SYNCHRONIZE;
   Message ('Working... (30%)', NO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
/*
** Another long-running update statement goes here
*/
   Message ('Working... (80%)', NO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
/*
** Last long-running statement here
*/
   Message ('Done...', NO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
END;

I haven't thought about changing that bar in ten years. I don't think it is possible to change but I am interested to get other people's input on your question.

It took me a while to find a form that was shown without the status/message bar.
The key is in the form property "CONSOLE WINDOW". Select <null>. Maybe you&acute;ll have to play a litlle with the window properties, but here are mine:
Window style: Document
Modal: Yes
The window is opened with the built-in:
call_form( 'your_form', NO_HIDE, NO_REPLACE, NO_QUERY_ONLY, lp_id );

Have fun, although after two years you&acute;ll probably found another solution. Nevertheless, any guests reading this thread will be gratefull (I hope) since its the first page in google looking for <<hide status bar oracle forms>>

Salu2,
Martin
