First of, I wasn't talking about him giving a link to the documentation. That is a good replay when you don't know a solution, but you still want to try to help. I did seen it before posting my original questions, but it doesn't say anything about the problem I encountered. I even mentioned that it was a general opinion, and at the end of the statement I added something as a respond to what he said.

So back to the matter, yes they do say not to use it, but they also give you reasons why not to, which none of them are bad for the use case the app I made is meant for. So by taking in consideration their warnings in the documentation, it was still a good option to use.

The documentation even goes so far as to tell you how to do what you want using a supported alternative method!!


Yes, it does talk about some alternatives, but I don't need color calibration, or blue light filtering, or color adaptation.

DID YOU EVEN READ IT!?!?

So based on what I just said, I can ask you the same, did you read everything I said?! But as I said in that statement, this type of behavior isn't helpful so why not try to avoid it, and actually try other means of expressing to get your point of view understood, as this is something optional to do, no one is forcing you to answer every question the users of this website are posting?!

I even saw this article in which they talk about evolution of methods to do that, but there are a few problems with other methods they present, first and most important this:
Quote:
The Direct3D 9 and DXGI APIs are “write only”. You can't read the value of the hardware, modify it, and then set it. You can only set the ramp.

The problem with this is that my app is meant for general gamma change, which means when the user closes the app, he has an option to restore to the original gamma value, which with those 2 you can't.

And also this problem:
Quote:
Furthermore, you can only set gamma when the app is full screen.

I need it to work in general not based on an app that is running in fullscreen mode.
