The last "manually" should be automaticly.

You have to add your partitions manually either using VOLUMES tooltype or using the GUI. It doesn't find any partitions manually.

It's a bug in Intuition. Iconify it. Click one of the gauges and select
"Iconify" from the menu. No need to close it down.

Nice tool. You could include an alternative to not display a gauge below the
disk icon itself but colour the icon from bottom to top as if you would look
into a bottle that is 3/4 filled.

Thanks for pointing these things out. These are fixed now.

If you set this commodity "inactive", it will start to hog cpu cycles.
Or at least, upon removing it, general slowdown vanished.

Also the maximum update interval of 5 seconds is somewhat low, when the disk(s)
are not being accessed. ty for listening

everyday usefull

I found that font tooltype bug and it's fixed now. (I had a wrong command in the
Comment by: AlexC ( 24 Feb 2007, 22:10File version: 1.0

I launched FuelGauge with Snoopy running and from the output I can tell that it
has some hard-coded "FONTS:Bitstream" strings somewhere because it

FuelGauge: FAIL = Open("FONTS:Bitstream .font",OLD) = [0x00000000]
FuelGauge: FAIL = Open("FONTS:Bitstream .otag",OLD) = [0x00000000]

Looks like it doesn't handle the string passed by the FONT tooltype correctly as
buffer still contains parts of the hard-coded string.

If you need a hand, email the source or at least the related lines to AmigaOne
at theworld dot net and I'll check it out.

I have 14 partitions, 1 displays correctly, the only difference is the icon
image. it might be the png icon plugin, I'll create some double image icons and
see if they work ok

snapshoted mine 4 drives with no problem here... works like a charm
Comment by: anonymous ( 24 Feb 2007, 09:42File version: 1.0
I've been missing this a lot! Thanks for making it as none of the old programs
that did this on os3x works on os4.

perhaps add pop-up on gauge to display MB Free/Used
Comment by: Severin ( 23 Feb 2007, 18:41File version: 1.0

Yes, all icons have been snapshot-ed, I noticed they didn't display the guage in
the right place unless you did...
Comment by: Tuomas H. ( 23 Feb 2007, 13:11File version: 1.0
I just verified that snapshot thing.
Comment by: Tuomas H. ( 23 Feb 2007, 13:06File version: 1.0
I found out that my programs can't use DejaVu fonts and I don't know why. I'm
using IDiskfont->OpenDiskFont and ta_Name=(STRPTR)FontName (<=char
[1024+1]), ta_YSize=FontSize (<=uint16), ta_Style=FS_NORMAL and

Severin: Do you have snapshotted all your icons ? It might be that icons must be
snapshotted otherwise my program can't read correct coordinates. I'm reading
icon coordinates from DiskObject.do_CurrentX and DiskObject.do_CurrentY.

I hope somebody can help me a little bit.

AlexC & Tuomas:

I tried to use DejaVu Sans Condensed as the default font and it wouldn't accept
it, just kept popping up an unable toload font message, I even cut'n'pasted the
font name from an ASL requester to make sure I had it right :-(
Comment by: AlexC ( 22 Feb 2007, 20:38File version: 1.0
Neat proggy!

The default font should probably be set to DejaVu instead as it replaces
Bitstream Vera

For the commodity example, checkout AmiSnap_FX.lha as the 1.0 AmiSnap.lha
doesn't show how to intercept a second launch.
Though in your case you're running multiple instances so you'd have to make
quite a few changes to monitor multiple volumes from a single instances, but it
can be done :-)

Tuomas H:

it's a single image png icon http://www.am1ga.net/disk.info

Grab a copy of AmiSnap, the full source is included and is a commodity, so
should show you how it's done...
Comment by: Tuomas H. ( 22 Feb 2007, 13:21File version: 1.0
What type of icons have you which have problems ?

I think I would make it as commodity but I want to finish some other projects
first and I must learn how to make commodities first.

I think losy == lousy and descriptopn == description !?
It's not easy to think good descriptions and my English skills aren't good. Good
suggestions are welcome !

with a few updates this one will be one of "the keepers" for sure.

Rebooted again just in case, error is still there, screen grab here:
Comment by: Severin ( 21 Feb 2007, 18:40File version: 1.0
Found a bug... It doesn't work with all icon images, I just replaced mine and
the guage that is set to the right is being displayed UNDER the left hand side,
even after a reboot :(
Comment by: Severin ( 21 Feb 2007, 18:27File version: 1.0
Nice idea, it needs a few things though...

Either 2nd run quits or detect if the tooltypes have been changed and update

The reaction is excellent but needs a way to set the width, having it the same
as the icon is way too big, a quarter or eigth would be better.

This is a losy descriptopn of the file..
