Battery Level Indicator

Postby Minos Kritikos on 25 Dec 2015, 19:39

I constantly use Cross on battery mode with my laptop to organise my music when I'm not performing. I do this in full screen mode and it would be nice to have a battery level indicator in the top right corner. I know this is not a high priority feature, but if it's a quick and easy thing to do, would be nice to see in the next update.

Merry xmas everyone :)

Hi Daniel,

Yes the laptop has its windows battery icon in the bottom right of the taskbar, but this is not visible in full screen mode. Not sure how I could place it on top of the software.

this will not be easy. every os version has it's own properties so not a simple piece of 'show the same icon'.

I suppose setting a warning in 'energy settings' will be easiest.

Even having it default visible in the taskbar isn't common no more.

I see, I guess exiting fullscreen to check battery level and then reentering really is as simple as it gets...thanks for replies guys! happy holidays :)

It's a standard api value available to developers in both Windows and OSX if I am correct, meaning that a developer should be able to have a battery level meter in their software should they so choose (pretty much along the same lines as a CPU load indicator).
