Nativescript brightness

ns plugin add @nativescript/brightness

This command automatically installs the necessary files, as well as stores @nativescript/brightness as a dependency in your project's package.json file.

This plugin requires <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS"/> to be added in the android manifest.

Usage

To use the brightness module you must first require() and instantiate it:

// JavaScript
var nativescriptBrightness = require("@nativescript/brightness");
var brightness = new nativescriptBrightness.Brightness();

Or if you’re using TypeScript, import the module:

// TypeScript
import { Brightness } from '@nativescript/brightness';
const brightness = new Brightness();

After you have a reference to the module you can then call its get() and set() methods. For example, the code below updates you screen's brightness with an intensity setting of 25%.

The intensity can be set to a value from 1 to 100.

// TypeScript
import { Brightness } from '@nativescript/brightness';
const brightness = new Brightness();

brightness.set({
intensity: 25
});
