    Thanks for the great app!

    I SHOULD be able to accomplish that. So for instance I add a few points of green to all of them. And if people don't want that, then they can just leave that value as a 0.

    I was thinking something more like allowing complete control over each of the color channels. For example, your ini file could look something like...

    IndependentColorChannels <yes, no>

    DayRed <Brightness value>,<Contrast value>, <Gamma value>
    DayBlue <Brightness value>,<Contrast value>, <Gamma value>
    DayGreen <Brightness value>,<Contrast value>, <Gamma value>

    NightRed <Brightness value>,<Contrast value>, <Gamma value>
    NightBlue <Brightness value>,<Contrast value>, <Gamma value>
    NightGreen <Brightness value>,<Contrast value>, <Gamma value>

    If "IdependentColorChannels" is set to yes then the above format or something similar can be used to change/set the screen parameters. If it is set to no you could read values from the existing fields in the ini file.

    Perhaps a better way to set things up would be to transpose the matrix so ...

    DayContrast <Red>, <Blue>,<Green>
    DayBrightness <Red>, <Blue>,<Green>
    DayGamma <Red>, <Blue>,<Green>

    NightContrast <Red>, <Blue>,<Green>
    NightBrightness <Red>, <Blue>,<Green>
    NightGamma <Red>, <Blue>,<Green>

    and when the independentcolorchannels flag is set to "off" the data in the <red> field is used to set the display parameters and the other values are ignored.

    I think the second method will integrate with your app quite nicely if you choose to implement it.

    Cheers,

    I have a couple of quick and easy requests for Gamma Control...

    Make the Gamma/Contrast/Brightness +/- buttons auto increment/decrement when held down. My fingers hurt after clicking 300 times to set the values! (I do realize I can set them in the INI, but that's hard to do with my keyboard way over on the passenger's side of the car...)

    What does Remember Original do?

    The buttons - Set day/night gamma, remember..., restore..., finished..., and restore - have somewhat obscure meanings. For instance, what do the Set buttons do if I don't press the Define Values button?

    To alieviate this situation, I propose the following simple solutions:
    Move the two Set buttons to the hidden area containing the +/- buttons. (Make them disabled if Define Values is unselected)
    Move Define Values to the top of the list (it's likely the first thing anyone would use)

    And one final request: make the whole app shorter (when +/- buttons are displayed). It's taller than 480px. (perhaps add a new tab holding the +/- buttons to the right) Keep in mind that Windoze doesn't move the app when a form is resized, so the bottom is always shown off the screen at low res's (hence, my request to have them at the right).

    Thanks in advance...

    Now you know why the app is going to be totally rewritten

    Huh? XML for GC? WTF? Are you making it skinnable or something?
