I have implemented an applet that displays the status of a wireless network
connection in kicker (screen shot attached). The screen shot shows the applet
(3 bars, link quality, signal and noise level) and a dialog showing the link
The applet is finished and works for a couple of weeks already. I would like
to add it to kdenetwork, I was waiting for KDE 3.1 to be finished.
A couple of questions remain:
- - The code is "partially operating system", that is, it uses a OS-specific
implementation to retrieve the displayed settings (one pure virtual,
basically). So for now it only works for Linux, but implementations for other
OSes (provided they have something similar to the Linux wireless extensions)
can be easily added. I prefer to add it to kdenetwork anyways, as otherwise I
think those implementations will never come up.
- - Can somebody point me the name of a #define to decide whether we are
compiling for a Linux system :-) I need that for the factory method that
creates the polling object.
Thanks for your comments,
