Hello, so I can turn on the FM transmitter with one tap on an icon
via /usr/bin/fmtx_client -p 1. I want to be able to turn the transmitter
OFF with the same icon. I want to know if there is a way to query the
transmitter status so I can just code a toggle function.

Have you looked at the Queen Beecon Widget pages or the sources of desktop plugins that are already available?

Can you not use the hildon-status-menu to toggle this on and off.
If using CSSU this can be set to always shown in the menu.

Use this with QBW
Code:
result=$( /usr/bin/fmtx_client -p$( /usr/bin/fmtx_client | /bin/grep -q  '^state=enabled' ; echo $? ) | /usr/bin/awk -F '=' '($1=="state") {print  $2}' ); echo $result; [ $result = "enabled" ]

There used to be a desktop widget with on/off icons for the FM transmitter & bluetooth (as well as up/down freq adjustment buttons for the FM transmitter).

I had it on my desktop & it worked very well, but it didn't come back after the last reflash. I can't remember what it was called, but it came from maemo.org

Edit:
Here it is, Friendly FM. Is this sort of what you're looking for? Has a button to toggle the FM transmitter on & off.

This is the (very easy) answer:-

Code:
[ -f /home/user/fmon.txt ] &&  /usr/bin/fmtx_client -p 0 && rm /home/user/fmon.txt && exit 0
/usr/bin/fmtx_client -p 1 >/home/user/fmon.txt
Don't need a "widget", just a very simple bit of code
