is a visual Delphi/C++Builder component that diplays the charging
level of the battery in a chart. You can specify different colors
for different charging levels and you can indicate it also in text
format in percents.
Beside this, it has many other useful methods to:
- get battery status
- get AC line status
- get battery lifetime
- turn off the computer
- hibernate the computer
- suspend (standby) the computer
- reboot the computer
- turn off monitor
- run screen saver
- log off interactive user
- get Windows version
- enable hibernation
It has more power related events like:
- OnResumeAutomatic and so on.
The demo version is fully functional in Delphi/C++Builder IDE, but
it displays a nag dialog (the licensed version will, of course,
not have a nag dialog and will not be limited to the IDE). The package
includes demo programs for Delphi and C++Builder and a help file
with the description of the component.
