How to retrieve battery level information ?

Recommended Posts

Quite the great forum you have here, allthough I've not been able to find information about how to retrieve the battery level on smartphone 2003 SE.

If you have a method that works for 2002 as well it's even better.

I've coded quite alot C++ for the x86 platform, but haven't coded for SP before, so if there's a huge difference, a few hints on what to do and not to do would be greatly appreciated as well.

About the battery level all I really need is a zero to hundred indicator or whatever format it's stored in (I saw a buyable DLL which returned it as a value between 0x0000 and 0xFFFF)

Lastly if you happen to know a way to execute a program just before the Smartphone shuts down that'd be awesome :)

Thanks alot for your help in advance.

First of all thanks alot :)

You wouldn't happen to know a way to make MSDN only search through Win CE functions ? Since I could find GetSystemPowerStatus quite easy, but that's seemingly not for Win CE.

I was afraid you'd say I can't run an application prior to shutdown.

I guess my only option for doing this, would be having the program running at all time (and detect the shutdown of the program instead).
