About[edit]

The Status Icon plugin is a plugin which adds a new column to the torrents view providing a "status" indicator - where each state that a torrent can be in has its own icon. The status text is shown as a tooltip when you hover over the icon.

Images[edit]

Perhaps a picture would make it clearer? Here's a screenshot of the plugin (with "Determination - Comfort" skin): Status icon 1.png

Skins[edit]

This page shows what skins are included by default with the plugin. You can currently use any skin currently intended for the µTorrent client.

Thanks[edit]

Thanks to Determination, fractalnoise and iconaholic for letting me use their skins, and thanks to The_8472 for doing the German translation of the plugin.

Mini FAQ[edit]

No-one's asked these questions yet, but just in case they do...

Why do you use µTorrent skins?[edit]

When I first wrote the plugin, I just wanted some icons to test it with (I didn't really want to make my own ones). But then I decided to actually spend the time to make it compatible with µTorrent skins, so I didn't have to come up with my own skins.

Why don't you use your own skin format?[edit]

That's something I intend to do. It'd be nice to hear what sort of things people may want to include the status icon indicator, and then I can come up we can come up with our own skin format, rather than having to use the µTorrent format.

Can I customise other parts of the Azureus UI with this plugin?[edit]

No - plugin API for Azureus doesn't allow that at the moment.

Future Changes[edit]

  • Health colour icon overlay (screenshot here).
  • Health colour used for row (screenshot here).
  • New custom skin definition set (needs more decision about it)
    • Include "disk checking" icon.
    • (Any more suggestions?)
