    Unfortunately, there is no public API for this job.

    But you may try an alternative way (please be aware that I've never actually tried this, so I cannot guarantee that it will work, or that it will not destroy your phone..:-)

    1. create the MBM file with two bitmaps, the size of the first one is 144x132 and the second one is 143X101 (this one is the "dimmed" version)

    2. put the bitmap in the place of the current image (c:\system\data\backgroundimage.mbm)

    3. restart the phone (or at least phone application)

    You may also look through this forum, maybe you will find a better solution.
