Any way to access the OS Brightness setting?


#1

Looked around the API and did some Google searching and didn’t find anything… are there any functions that will change the brightness of the monitor on the machine the user is using? I see calls to methods that will adjust the comps audio volume… so I assumed there might be options to adjust the monitor brightness.

Thank you.

You could use the Gamma Ramp API to set the brightness, but it doesn’t have a way to access the current brightness. Hopefully this isn’t a deal-breaker for you! This might also only work on some video cards, so I’d make sure it’s compatible with whatever machines you plan to deploy your program to.
