Turn up backlight using IQAN Run

Is there a way to turn up the backlight using IQAN Run. With the new MD4-5 M19 the default backlight setting is not bright enough. I would like to turn it up during the programming process. It would be nice to have this capability on the system page along with setting the date and time.

One thing you can do is to connect a channel to the MD4 display pages property Backlight control, like this:

When you change the value of the channel controlling the backlight, the backlight setting on the MD4 will change. 

It only works one way, the operator can then manually change backlight using the MD4 menu system.

A nice solution could be to use a small script built in IQANscript to first send your application and then set this parameter.
