Unrevised from 8.1 to 8.2.
8.1 version

simple-mode

Arguments: common-status-bar

Returns (or sets with setf) whether common-status-bar is in simple mode. In simple mode, a common-status-bar is not sectioned, but remembers the positioning and text contents of its various sections (officially called parts), which will once again be displayed if the common-status-bar is returned to non-simple mode.

Note that calling status-bar-message also switches the simple-mode according to the :part keyword argument, whose default is zero. If the part argument is :simple, then simple-mode is turned on and the message is written across the entire status-bar (as needed). Otherwise the sections are shown and the message is displayed in the requested part. So (setf simple-mode) is used only for switching between displaying the sectioned messages and displaying the unsectioned message after both sets of messages have been written to the status-bar with status-bar-message.
