Are you talking about the brightness of the device screen and you want to control that from your application via an API? If so, not possible.

Re: How to increase screen brightness?

The Kobo app has a brightness setting but I'm not sure how it works. I guess it changes the background color of the text so it gives the ilusion of brightness. I don't think they are actually changing the device's brightness levels. Or are they?

I wonder.

Cheers!

Looks like Kobo is just placing a "grey" overlay with alpha value set to give the appearance of birghtness change. It only changes the pages, not the entire app or the device.
