Clicking on the status button toggles the status panel. This panel appears at the bottom of the render window displaying useful information such as the current Arm (manipulator), current end effector, as well as status information about the current condition of the simulation in the case of a joint limit, collision or singularity. If a collision or joint limit is detected, it will highlight the two colliding links. Images of these phenomenon can be seen below.
