The Status Bar is divided into 3 sections. The first section is the main part of the status bar, and it displays status messages as well as hints (eg. when you move the mouse over the toolbar or menu items, their function is displayed on the status bar). The second section displays the current status of the PhonePad database. A green light indicates that the database is running, a red light indicates the database has been shut down. The third section displays the current date and time.
