Overview

This code snippet demonstrates how to retrieve current battery level.

Application retrieves system property com.nokia.mid.batterylevel, which contains current battery level in percentage, and displays it.

Source file: BatteryLevel.java

import javax.microedition.lcdui.Command;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.CommandListener;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Display;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Displayable;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.Form;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.StringItem;
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("Current battery level:", "");
form.append(level);
 
form.addCommand(exitCommand);
form.addCommand(refreshCommand);
form.setCommandListener(this);
 
display = Display.getDisplay(this);
display.setCurrent(form);
 
checkBatteryLevel();
}
 
/**
* From MIDlet.
* Called when the MIDlet is started.
*/

public void startApp() {
// No implementation required.
}
 
/**
* From MIDlet.
* Called to signal the MIDlet to enter the Paused state.
*/

public void pauseApp() {
// No implementation required.
}
 
/**
* From MIDlet.
* Called to signal the MIDlet to terminate.
* @param unconditional whether the MIDlet has to be unconditionally
* terminated
*/

public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional) {
// 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");
level.setText("\n"+property+"%");
}
}

Postconditions

This code will display current battery level in percentage.
