    Ok, it turned out an indicator was covering the slider. So on reload, the indicator became the top most, and hid the slider. I moved it, now it works just fine.

    Thanks Monkeyracer, now I gotta go and change my main menus to add battery sliders.

    I figured something familiar to my current experience would be ideal. I'm used to seeing the little battery icon and when it's full, it's full, when it's empty, it's easy to tell.

    I'll probably redesign my slider in the future, but I just stole the images from the ipod 5.5G firmware 1.2 since there was already 21 images.

    Here's a pic of it working:

    Powermon already supports a slider for battery level, but it's been so long since I looked at that plugin, I'm not sure whether I published the version has that code in it or not.
    I better check...

    I've got the slider code figured out, in a roundabout way, but it would be nice to have an indicator for the BATTSTATE code so that I can have a little lightning bolt show up when the adapter is plugged in, and go away when it's not.

    Good idea - will add that to the plugin in the next day or so.
    Have you got an example lightning bolt image I can include with the plugin?
