HDMI output after screen timeout?

Hi all,

 

Working on my BB10 app which I'm hoping to get in this week, just putting the finishing touches on it, so I hope you can help with this one.

 

My app is designed to be used with the HDMI-out cable and displayed on a larger display, e.g. a TV. Ideally, I'd like to have the screen dim/turn off while the app is running (in the foreground), and still have it continue running and output to the HDMI. Can anyone shed some light on this one for me? I've searched a bit but haven't found an answer.

 

Thanks, and here's to the big day in just 3 more weeks!

Tested and solved.

 

If you're wondering, the app keeps running after the screen dims. Awesome :smileyhappy:

And - you can switch out of the app. As long as no other app is using HDMI - it will keep presenting to the screen.
