Re: Cannot change screen brightness

Has anyone succeeded to make this work?


I am facing the same problem, using very similar code to ajust screen brightness. It works fine on Android devicess, however it does not work on Blackberry.


WindowManager.LayoutParams lp = getWindow().getAttributes();

lp.screenBrightness = value[screenBrightness];


Any help would be appreciated
