Dimmer

Recommended Posts

sandman

Easily set a "dimmer" amount for your screen. Useful for people who don't want such a bright laptop at night without a built-in dimmer function.

Based off my TransIT app.

Increase/decrease dim by pressing NumPad+ or NumPad- respectively. Press NumPad* to set a custom amount.

Source @ Pastebin (?)

Incase you didn't understand, you cannot click any desktop icon because the window masked over it. Of course you can click programs because the window is beneath.

No, you did not understand, I can click any icon or program. Even if the dimmer is set.

Justin, stay in your own thread, there will be NO hijacking from you... you're already on my sh** list.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I'm not hijacking. Whats a sh** list?

Why do you keep targeting me when I come close to hijacking?

And talk to Generator, he started it first, thats prove you have been targeting me.

And I'm not trying to be banned here, I was proving a point to Generator, whats wrong with that?

Read the source, you cannot click desktop icon while the dim is on.

Edit: Spelling.

I got to click a couple, after around 5 minutes it stopped, so maybe my computer is slow or something. Sorry.

Oops... I wrote this in a hurry. I'll have to make some way for it to accept clicks below.

@Justin: :P Please calm your volatile temper.. it has poisoned two threads already.

Beside the technical issues that this has, most laptops where dimmers are common to save energy do not have a numpad and thus can not easily use the numpad to control this. :P

I also do not think that making a screen black, makes it consume less energy.

Also, I think you should set the background color of the window to black so if you set the transparency near 255, it does not become obvious this is just a window, and not a real dimmer.

GUISetBkColor($win, 0x000000);

Line 16 ;)

I wasn't aiming for consuming less energy; more to reduce the brightness and eye pain from using a laptop at night without a built-in dimmer.

And oops... I never thought about that. :)

then it's probably just my computer. It was grey before, but now it is blue. ;)
