The status bar is the horizontal area at the bottom of an ArcGIS application window. It provides information about the current state of the application and the selected command. For example, if you select a layer in the table of contents in ArcMap, the status bar will tell you how many features are currently selected. It may also display a progress bar while something is being processed. The StatusBar property on the esriFramework.IApplication interface can be used to get a reference to the StatusBar object.
