I'm currently using the following to return signal strength

Code:
$#NWIFI#!=?#NWSIG#:#NCSIG#$
Is there a way to edit that code to get the value returned as a percentage please?

Could you please clarify, what you mean with "percentage"? Percentage of available signal levels? Percentage of signal quality?

Sorry, this totally slipped my mind

While it's certainly possible to calculate a percentage, I doubt its usefulness. The two variables have a small, not continuous range (#NWSIG# 0-9, #NCSIG# 0-31) which results in rather choppy and larger percentage steps.
If you still want to use it though, here is the modified code
Code:
$#NWSTATE=2?(#NWSIG#/9*100):(#NCSIG#/31*100)$%
(the % has to be outside the $ signs)

Thanks for that

Seems to half work but my WiFi signal never shows more that around 30% even when it is very strong? Seems like the second part of the code is being used for both WiFi and Cellular?

I made a typing error when transferring it from my mobile. First part should read #NWSTATE#=2 not #NWSTATE=2.
