This snippet demonstrates how to check whether the screen backlight is off and how to turn it on. This snippet can be self-signed.
If the phone is inactive for a certain period, the backlight will turn off automatically to save battery power. In some cases, this operation could be disturbing, for example, during navigation.
//necessary header file
//retrieve EBacklightState value
HAL::Get( HALData::EBacklightState, backlightState );
//backlight is ON now.
//backlight is Off now.
//ResetInactivityTime will reset all user inactivity timers and backlight
//will be turn on
Screen backlight will be turned on.
