Thinking to get a new screen for my computer, I use alot of panels on screen monitor overlays, such as brightness slider, gaming mode and so on, my current monitor also displays the current power/energy draw/usage as in slider boxes, so if I increase brightness for example: slider boxes increases too. I do like info stuff like that, so new monitors like AOC,Dell etc have this feature too?
 
Dell has had a energy consumption meter on their OSDs for a while now. However, it's not really informative since it's a simple meter.

Otherwise I don't think any monitor manufacturer has something that shows actual numbers since that increases complexity and cost. You could always get a Kill-A-Watt or something and measure how much power the monitor consumes at various brightness levels. Power consumption for LCDs typically remains consistent unless it's using local dimming.
