Even when you make the screen completly black, when there's no other light in a room, you can still see the "black" monitor glow, unless, you set the brightness on a monitor lower than what it is.
It seems a bit unreasonable to get the user to turn down the monitors brigtness to use my application (since it's going to be used in a dark room, and the room needs to remain dark yet an image needs to be shown on the screen, which is not a problem if the brightness is turned down), is there a way, and if so, how can you get a VB application to decrease and increase the brightness of the monitor (or possibly globally over windows?) - note: Monitor going on standby is not a solution
Thanks in advance
