how to assign the date and time to the status strip..
it shud automatically update the date and time.
also i want to display the name of the form in the status strip.
how can this be done.

This is easy enough to accomplish but I would suggest against it since it would mean having to include a timer event that is constantly running throughout your program to update the time. As for adding your form name, add a status strip and on your status strip add a StatusLabel, in your coding assign the form name to the status label as so:

'Recommend re-naming to something more meaningfull
ToolStripStatusLabel1.Text = Me.Name
