I'm up for reg changes do. They're fun. Don't bother with an xml parser.

Thumbs up
Great app! Would it be possible to include a version that is slightly thinner (from top to bottom)? I like this much better than the SPB PP meter but the size is a bit too tall.

I love it either way. Thanks for sharing!

In general, settings via regedit are better than nothing Though I'm quite happy with its default behaviour, colors and system thresholds (for me 20% is yellow and 10% is red).

Cool
Simple:
First delete the link to it from \windows\startup
The reset the device. Now the file is free to be deleted.

Any chance you would share the sources for this little application ? I'd love to customize it for my needs (Fullscreen, gradient, thinner and no painting at some places so it looks "behind" the start button in the VistaBetaONE skin).

Here you go.
Not much code there any way, just remember to get rid of the 'LVM' prefixes on classes and stuff.

Thank you very much... I have never coded on windows mobile before, and I am pleased at how much it looks like plain Win32 code. A very good example to start since I already have too many years of experience with Win32...

I'll be releasing it once I'm done, I guess I'm not the only one using WA2 and VistaBetaTWO...

Yea, it is pretty easy to switch to mobile if you are experienced in win32 programming.
The fact that eVC 4 looks just like VS 6 helped me make the transition.

Couple of hints to remember:
a) All APIs are UNICODE (ASCII versions removed to reduce space)
b) Almost for all functions that have simple and extended version (like TextOut or OpenRegKey) only the extended versions are left.
c) There are no relative paths. If you write something like fopen("test.txt", "wb); the file will always be created in the root directory no matter where you run from. To get your current location you can use GetModuleFileName(GetModuleHandle(NULL), moduleName, 255);

Good luck.

I like this app. Full screen (edge to edge) and the option to make it thinner would be great! 1/2 the size would be perfect. Also can there be an option to follow the default battery indicator's color scheme and actions? My battery indicator scrolls while charging and it's default colors go from blue-orange-red while the battery depletes. Thanks
