I would like to update the text in a pane in the status bar periodically. Everything I've seen regarding this subject says it has to be done with an update handler. I did that but unfortunately the text only updates on a user action, like moving the mouse. Does anyone know of a way to update the text without an update handler, or if not, how to update the text without any user actions? Thanks in advance.

You can use timer to periodically update the status text; SetTimer[^] will create one timer and in it's OnTimer event you can update the status text.
