ZylBattery is a visual Delphi/C++Builder component that diplays the charging level of the battery in a chart. You can specify different colors for different charging levels and you can indicate it also in text format in percents.
Beside this, it has many other useful methods to:
- get battery status
- get AC line status
- get battery lifetime
- turn off the computer
- hibernate the computer
- suspend (standby) the computer
- reboot the computer
- turn off monitor
- run screen saver
- log off interactive user
- get Windows version
- enable hibernation
It has more power related events like:
- OnResumeAutomatic and so on.
The demo version is fully functional in Delphi/C++Builder IDE, but it displays a nag dialog (the licensed version will, of course, not have a nag dialog and will not be limited to the IDE). The package includes demo programs for Delphi and C++Builder and a help file with the description of the component.

If you have a previous version of the component installed, you must remove it completely before installing this version. To remove a previous installation, proceed as follows:
-Start the IDE, open the packages page by selecting Component - Install Packages
-Select ZylBatteryPack package in the list and click the Remove button
-Open Tools - Environment Options - Library and remove the library path pointing to ZylBattery folder
-Close the IDE
-Browse to the folder where your bpl and dcp files are located (default is $(DELPHI)\Projects\Bpl for Delphi).
-Delete all of the files related to ZylBattery
-Delete or rename the top folder where ZylBattery is installed
-Start regedit (click Start - Run, type "regedit.exe" and hit Enter). Open the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\\\Palette and delete all name/value items in the list related to ZylBattery. ( is either "Delphi" or "C++Builder", is the IDE version you have installed)
-Unzip the zip file and open the ZylBatteryPack.dpk file in Delphi, compile and install it and add to Tools/Environment Options/Library (in older Delphi menu) or Tools/Options/Delphi Options/Library/Library Path (in newer Delhi menu) the path of the installation (where the ZylBattery.dcu file is located) or Tools/Options/C++ Options/Paths and Directories/Library Path (in newer C++Builder menu, in C++Builder 10 or later, set them also for the classic compiler) the path of the installation (where the ZylBattery.dcu or ZylBattery.dcuil file is located).

Install the 32-bit version of the component as it described above and add to Tools/Options/Delphi Options/Library/Library Path, selected platform: 64-bit Windows the path of the Win64 subfolder of the component.
Before compiling the host application for 64-bit Windows, right click on Target Platforms, Add Platform and add 64-bit Windows (Make the selected platform active). If you compile the application in this way, it will be a native 64-bit application.
If you can't open the help file:
-right-click on the help.chm file to get the properties
-on the bottom it says: “This file came form another computer....”
-push “Unblock” next to this text
-now the help.chm files opens as all other help files
