If the Callback Function processes a message, it should return %TRUE (non-zero) to prevent the message being passed unnecessarily to the dialog callback (if one exists). The dialog callback should also return %TRUE if the notification message is processed by that Callback Function.

If Style will contains %CCS_BOTTOM or %CCS_TOP, its size will be automatically adjusted only if the dialog events where the statusbar is placed are handled by a callback function.
