systemDashboard - Wireless meter
systemDashboard - Wireless meter is a small widget developed for the Yahoo! Widget Engine, that you can use to monitor the signal strength of your wireless network connection.
The interface of the application is based on a small, circular frame which shows the current percentage of your wireless signal. This frame can be moved to any position on the screen, with the help of the mouse cursor.
Thanks to the default options supplied by Yahoo! Widget Engine, you can also enable the frame to ignore mouse events and prevent dragging, as well as to stay on top or below all the other windows.
It is possible to change the signal display mode ("Straight Percentage", "Sugar-Coated", "Really Really Sugar Coated"), dashboard style (e.g. Chrome, brushed steel) and color (e.g. orange, gray).
Furthermore, you may specify a custom color, make the frame dim when the wireless connection is inactive, hide the percentage readout, modify the widget size and enable ring colorization, as well as set the information refresh rate.
