The PowerStatus class represents information about the current AC line power status, battery charging status, and battery charge status.

This class is used by the PowerStatus property of the SystemInformation class to indicate current system power information.

The following example lists all properties of the PowerStatus class in a ListBox control and displays the current value of the associated property in a TextBox control when a list item selected.
