[Suggestion] WiFiListStyle: include signal-strength

Post by ikarus1969 »

Hi!

I would like to make a suggestion for the WiFiStatus-plugin:

if "WiFiInfoType" is set to "List" i find it interesting if i could select to have the signal strength listed too as an optional part to each visible network.

As it is mentioned that the list is sorted according to the signal-strength (as a note to the "WiFiListLimit" parameter) the information should be available.

So maybe it's possible to add to the existing styles

Code: Select all

    0: SSID.
    1: SSID @band.
    2: SSID (Encryption:Authentication).
    3: SSID @band (Encryption:Authentication).
some new codes which include the signal-strength:

Code: Select all

    4: SSID @signal-strength.
    5: SSID @band @signal-strength.
    6: SSID (Encryption:Authentication) @signal-strength.
    7: SSID @band (Encryption:Authentication) @signal-strength.

We just added this to WifiStatus. Sorry it took so long.

One change we went with is the signal-strength will be enclosed in brackets instead of the using the @ symbol.

Thanks for the suggestion!

So many thanks for this! In Austria (and maybe Germany too) we have a saying: "Was lange währt, wird endlich gut". Google translates that to "What is worth waiting for."
:great:

If I knew git better, I would have made a request long ago for this.
