    Power control in nofication bar

    I am currently working on a Power Control menu that would be accessible by selecting an Ongoing notification. This would allow control of Wifi, Bluetooth, etc. However, I saw how the Galaxy S has implemented it and am wondering if anyone knows how to do that? Or is that part of the OS and not editable without starting from AOSP?

    I've got a better idea:
    Make it so you can put any bar widget into the notifications bar, like power control or music control. I've been looking for ways of putting these into a series of shortcuts in launcher pro's dock, but in the notifications bar would be a good place for them too.
    What do ya think?

    Nothing yet. Perhaps I need to make a bigger stink about this...

    I'd probably ask a dev. Koush, Chevy, BD (or RafficaX), and others would know I'm sure! I think this is an EXCELLENT idea!

    Someone was thinking the same thing. It looks like one of the new features of the latests CyanogenMod is widgets in the notification bar.

    CHANGELOG.mkdn at froyo from CyanogenMod's android_vendor_cyanogen - GitHub

    Is it on your Droid?

    dahctor had emailed me about this idea a while back. I did some preliminary investigation of what was possible in a third party app without root. It is possible to create a notification that either contains individually clickable toggles, or contains a widget. Both require a bit of API abuse, but placing a widget requires more of it. Perhaps a single app that can do it all would be best, but it might be overly complicated.
    (I also have a third idea for notification bar like toggles)

    Not yet sure if I'm going to do anything with this.
    Preference on supporting any widget vs toggles only?

    [edit]Just want to point out, the cyanogen notification toggles are toggles only, not any widget[/edit]

    Wouldn't a toggle be a better idea anyway? I mean, that way you're not wasting battery/CPU cycles to refresh it when it's not in use.

    And MIUI does the same thing, does it not? Toggles/widget in the pulldown bar?

    I use QuickDesk which lets me popup a homescreen over whatever app I am in to control such things. It even works in full screen apps like Angry Birds. Its still in Beta but is pretty solid.

    What I didn't realize about the notification bar on the samsung phones, is that when you're playing music, it's smart enough to pop the music control in there.

    Also, I think that if it can be done via root, do it as a proof of concept, and then see if you can get it fixed for non-root.

    @furbearingmammal
    Not everyone wants to be locked into a specific ROM. I have a Droid X, so my choices are limited to begin with. Also I don't like MIUI because, well, if I wanted an iPhone, I would have bought one, not bought a Droid and made it look like one.
