How to switch off T35 Backlight


#1

Hi,

I’ am using the Spider with a T35 Display for a small weather station on a boat. Though this gadgeteer is always on, I want to switch off the backlight of the display during the night. Does anyone know how I can do this.

Thanks,

Herwig

Hello,

Theoretically :


display_T35.SetBacklight(False)

If you want switch off only during the night, then you need apply a date time conditional.

If(DateTime.Now.Hour>20 && etc… “your expression here”)

I suggest you use one idle timer to switch off the backlight and then wake up when the T35 screen is touched by the user.

Regards,
