Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to retrieve the current battery level.

The application retrieves the system property com.nokia.mid.batterylevel which contains the current battery level (in per cent) and displays it.

Note that in Series 40 platform only signed MIDlets under operator domain can retrieve this information.

Source file: BatteryLevel.java

import javax.microedition.lcdui.CommandListener;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Display;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Displayable;

import javax.microedition.midlet.MIDlet;
 
 
public class BatteryLevel extends MIDlet implements CommandListener{
 
private Display display;
private Form form;
private Command exitCommand;
private Command refreshCommand;
private StringItem level;
 
 
/**
* Constructor. Constructs the object and initializes displayables.
*/

public BatteryLevel() {
form = new Form("Battery level.");
 
exitCommand = new Command("Exit", Command.EXIT, 2);
refreshCommand = new Command("Refresh", Command.OK, 1);
 
level = new StringItem("", "");
form.append(level);
 
form.addCommand(exitCommand);
form.addCommand(refreshCommand);
form.setCommandListener(this);
 
display = Display.getDisplay(this);
display.setCurrent(form);
 
checkBatteryLevel();
}
 
/**

*/

// No implementation required.
}

}
 
/**

// No implementation required
}
 
/**
* From CommandListener.
* Called by the system to indicate that a command has been invoked on a
* particular displayable.
* @param cmd the command that was invoked
* @param displayable the displayable where the command was invoked
*/

public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable d) {
if (c == refreshCommand) {
checkBatteryLevel();
} else if (c == exitCommand) {
notifyDestroyed();
}
}
 
/**
* Called to read current battery level.
*/

private void checkBatteryLevel() {
String property = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.batterylevel");
if (property == null) {
level.setLabel("Error:\n");
level.setText("Unable to retrieve current battery level.\n" +
"It's only available for signed midlets " +
"under operator domain.");
} else {
level.setLabel("Current battery level:");
level.setText("\n"+property+"%");
}
}
}

Postconditions

This code displays the current battery level in per cent.
