BattLineSvc V1 / Battery Indicator Line in Title Bar

A battery indicator line is nothing new, these have been around since before Windows Mobile 2003 SE, but most of these run as a process. Back in the days when all you got was Windows Mobile that wouldn’t have been much of a problem. But today, there’s more simultaneous processes running, using a lot of the 32 available slots for processes.

User thx1200’s BattLineSvc Battery Indicator Line runs as a service, keeping an extra slot available for an application or process to run in. Another advantage of it being a service is that it uses little to no resources.

Current features

  • Shows a nice bar along the top of your screen to indicate battery status.
  • Colour changes based on ‘warning’ and ‘critical’ battery levels (configurable).
  • Immediately correctly resizes when the screen orientation changes.
  • The battery level is updated at 20 second intervals and also when the device is awakes from sleep.
  • Can show a bar at the bottom of the battery bar (if you want it).
  • Can be offset from the left, if you have a fancy Windows Logo icon.
  • Height of the bar can be changed.
  • VERY low resources used — runs as a TRUE service and uses as close as 0% CPU as is possible by an app like this. So it’s good for even older snail devices. 馃榾
  • AppToDate support!
