Environmental Settings Actions

These are actions to change some settings in your device.

Brightness Action Category (Brght)

See the explanation on the Prefs+ screen about the Brightness Restore option.

Brightness Up, Brightness Down

Increment or decrement the screen brightness by a fixed value. Try changes like 30 or 40 to see the effect. If this change takes brightness below zero, Apt will put it back to a safe value automatically.

Brightness Up (Up%) and Down (Dn%) by Percentage

Change the brightness by a percentage of the current level. Valid values are, of course, between 1 and 100.

Brightness Set

Set the screen brightness to a fixed value.

Brightness Restore

Reset the brightness to the value applied when the target launched. If there is no brightness setting in the target preferences or in *default*, Apt will restore the brightness at the first Idle trigger action since the last Restore action. If that is also not possible, the brightness is set to 100 and an error message generated.

Set *Default* Brightess (SetD)

Set the value of the Brightness slider in the Prefs screen of the *Defaults* profile

When triggered, shows the panel so the user can set the brightness manually.
