Gadgets for Windows Vista and Windows 7

Here are some of my gadgets for Windows Vista's sidebar or Windows 7 gadget platform.


Battery Monitor

Battery Monitor screenshotAn indicator of the power state of your laptop battery.

Now supports remaining time calculation for laptops that do not support it natively.
This gadget is in english and french in the same download, language is detected automatically. Don't worry if the Windows Live Gallery download page is in french.

Known limitations :
-When you click on a partially transparent part of this gadget, the Windows Mobility Center doesn't open. This is caused by a bug (or feature?) in the Sidebar : clicking on partially transparent parts of a gadget doesn't fire any event that the developper can intercept. So the only workaround would be to make a fully opaque background for this gadget... but that would look ugly, like the first version of this gadget was.
-If your laptop doesn't support remaining time calculation natively, this gadget calculates the remaining time based on the time it takes your computer to use a full percent of the remaining battery. As a result, remaining time is not updated as often as you may expect it, since it can be updated only every percent elapsed.

NEW VERSION:
-fixed a bug in the remaining time calculation
-changed the default font
-launches Windows Mobility Center instead of the power options applet
