    Just wanted to get this thread set up. The patch isn't done yet, but I'd like some opinions and ideas from people.

    Ok, so I got bored and decided to play around with the statusbar. I've already done a lot of work with the top bar, so it took a little bit to think of a new idea lol. The most interesting thing I came up with was to shrink it!

    Here are a couple screenshots of what I have so far. Keep in mind that this patch isn't really polished yet. The icons you see are just low-quality temporary ones. I'll make better looking icons for the final version...


    (The statusbar is now 320x10px)

    So... Anyone have any suggestions?

    wow! nice. I wish there was a way to integrate notifications into the top bar rather than skinny it up though. what a waste of space to have a bar on the bottom and on the top.
    ...This programming stuff is actually addictive but really hard :/

    You should be able to access them easily by sliding your finger down from the top of the screen...

    Agreed! I'm not sure if that's possible to do with webOS though... lol

    Playing around with different sizes... I think this is the smallest it can go before it gets unreadable lol. (Statusbar set at 320x6px)


    (I used bright contrasting colors just to demonstrate this idea)

    Left green bar would be wifi.
    Right green bar would be rssi.
    Orange bar would be battery.
    Top middle blue bar would be bluetooth.

    I may play with this idea after I finish up Mini Statusbar.

    Time for some sleep... lol

    You have "the shining" Garrett lol! Great work! I really like the first setup. How about making them multi-colored, maybe with the circles ascending in size?

    Do the icons disappear when the radio, wifi, BT is turned off? What about icons for GPS, and headset mode?

    This is awesome. Is it 2.1 compatible? The low-res icons are fine.

    garrett doesnt sleep or rest. I can imagine his car, fridge, and all other devices in his house being modded to show battery, wifi, and rssi.

    this looks great man. While icons are flashy and neat, this is a rather minimalist approach, and it makes the background bigger.Can it perhaps be a few pixels higher so the font is not soo small perhaps?

    Looks great. Is it compatible with Sconix's "System Menu Today Menu"?

    Hell, I can imagine Garrett himself being modded to show battery, wifi and rssi.

    I don't care as long as keeping my phone patched also keeps him from mercilessly hunting down and murdering John Connor.

    +1 on the 2.1 compatibility.

    Also having the date would be nice. Maybe a preference panel that would allow users to configure what they want displayed?
