There are many ways to do this. For a status bar I'd simply draw a box outline, then use blt to colorfill the statusbar as far as you need it to be filled.

Heres a DirectDraw example:


//assume the outline has already been drawn
DDBLTFX ddbltfx;
RECT StatusRect;
ZeroMemory( &ddbltfx, sizeof(ddbltfx) );
ddbltfx.dwSize = sizeof(ddbltfx);
ddbltfx.dwFillColor = color;

SetRect(&StatusRect, left, top, right, bottom);

lpBackBuffer->Blt(&StatusRect, NULL, NULL, DDBLT_COLORFILL | DDBLT_WAIT, &ddbltfx);

Hmm... I guess that isn't a great example, but the concept still applies. At least it shows how to do colorfills in directdraw .
