Anybody have code to control the backlight settings on a Windows CE device?  Doing it via the registry is not cutting it since every adjustment is one step behind.  My application runs in Kiosk mode so the control panel is not available and I need to let the users set the backlight via my code.

I figured it out on my own.  You have to make the change in the Registry and then issue a BackLightChangeEvent.
