#413 closed enhancement (duplicate)

display profile in use

Reported by: piratebab Owned by: ainulindale
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: SHR Image Version: SHR-testing

When a profile like "silent" is use (i.e during a meeting), it is very frequent to forget to switch back to "default".
So I suggest to display the profile in use on top left of the screen (replacing "illume" text)

The typical way I see this handled on other phones would be an icon at the top (as opposed to replacing text). When the ringer is silenced, a bell icon would appear cross-out.

Perhaps this would be a better approach. This icon could also be used as a quick-launch shortcut for the shr-settings profile selector (addressing ticket 411).

The illume text is set by illume and it will IMHO be mighty difficult to change it and abuse it for our purposes. We need to write a nicer GSM Gadget anyway, so perhaps we can overlay that with a crossed bell if we have a silent profile, or something like that.

Just asked on IRC, and replacing that string is not easily possible:

< spaetz> raster: someone proposed to replace the "illume" text in the 
                taskbar with the current profile name. how much is that text hard coded?
< raster> spaetz: 100% hard-coded
< raster> when no window is active it just pastes illume in there
< raster> (it could be blank - but i just chose to advertise)
< raster> :)
< spaetz> ok, thought so
< raster> there is no code that fetches that string from somewhere

I'm interested in that too.
