Is there an easy way to get the current application's status bar and update it's text?

No, there is no easy and general way. You will need to keep a global reference to the status bar (using a static variable or whatever...). It depends on your application model how you will do it.

Also keep in mind that status bar in WPF is just a container for more controls (TextBlocks etc.).

There is no way in general, for any app, but as someone said, if the current application is not YOUR application, WPF does not provide ANY way of hooking in to windows and controlling them b/c there's only one window, the main one. Perhaps you need to explain what you want to do ?

Thanks for the responses and hints. I made a couple static variables that I set after the StatusBar and TextBox components are initialised.
