Use normal brightness keys for Shades

Is it possible to use the normal brightness keys for Shades?
Would be perfect!

I don't think it's possible because i don't think you can remap the brightness keys. For instance, if I have the hotkeys for shades set to use the command or option key, when i go to change the brightness it usually does a command in the program im on because it has a higher priority than Shades. Still, I agree, it would be perfect if i could use the brightness keys for Shades.

I suspect the individual above is correct (in that you wouldn\\\'t be able to remap the brightness keys). The brightness keys function identically whether running in OS X or in Bootcamp!

You can go into System Preferences, Keyboard pane, and check the box that says "Use function keys.." or "Use al F1, F2 etc. keys...". This will turn those keys into F-keys. Then you can map F1 and F2 to shades.

You can then remap the others or just use the fn key to access them.
