Good job!

That would be a really cool idea, but I don't know how to detect 'charging' status. Anybody have a link?

One point i have:
It will be very helpfull when there is also a right side offset.
It means with newer skins we have round corners. And with
that the left side offset is wonderfull, but i need also the
right one.

Is this possible for the next version?

that should be pretty easy. I can add that!

I don't know enough about the 'standard' platform to know if it will work, but since the classname is configurable, you might be able to get this to work if you know the window class.

I also have seen for the *.exe this resourceppc.h and this Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK (ARMV4I) and this Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK (ARMV4I) is used. That means it is for powerpc, or i am wrong thx1200?

That's correct, but sometimes apps for professional will work on standard without recompilation, depending on the chipset and the controls used. I just don't have any idea if services.exe is supported on standard, which battlinesvc absolutely requires.

Gotta say, this is pretty awesome. Now I can see my battery and clock at the same time. All it needs is a UI to configure, and indicator when charging, that would be awesome. Hope you figure that stuff out! Thanks!

I've played around a bit with Python, but I know nothing about windows mobile programming. I'm too new here to post links, but if you google 'windows mobile battery state enumeration' there's a few links that deal with getting charge status and AC line status.

You have done this in this way? The leading zeros are not supported. Otherwise the light goes on now?

Hint:
If you need the hex information for a color and you have further problems with your hex calculator, publish an icon 90x90 pixel and you will receive them.

Thanks for your help mike2nl,

I followed these steps and either couldn't see the thin line or some of the hex codes were not valid or accepted by my device. So after tampering with the values I decided to uninstall after stopping the app, then installed again. I noticed the old registry values remained after install, so I removed them manually and repeated the operation.

Also I didn't get your hint...

Thumbs up
Awesome app. App like this I was looking for a long time ago.
Thank you, thank you.

Just one thing. I have issue with starting after soft reset. I have to do it manually

I actually like this because it does NOT have the breaks. IMHO the continuous line looks much cleaner. Thanks for the pgm!
