GetMonitorBrightness Retrieves a monitor's minimum, maximum, and current brightness settings.
GetMonitorCapabilities Retrieves the configuration capabilities of a monitor.
GetMonitorColorTemperature Retrieves a monitor's current color temperature.
GetMonitorContrast Retrieves a monitor's minimum, maximum, and current contrast settings.
GetMonitorDisplayAreaPosition Retrieves a monitor's minimum, maximum, and current horizontal or vertical position.
GetMonitorDisplayAreaSize Retrieves a monitor's minimum, maximum, and current width or height.
GetMonitorRedGreenOrBlueDrive Retrieves a monitor's red, green, or blue drive value.
