In wall timer with dimmer function?

I have a 120v fixture that is currently on a dimmer switch but that I would also like to be controlled with a timer. Does such a switch exist that I can program for on off, and also dim?

I've never seen one. You can combine them though. Replace the existing switch box with one that is one gang wider, and install a timer and a dimmer next to each other. Feed the dimmer from the timer.

I am a lawyer, but not your lawyer. And who cares anyways? We're here to talk construction. This is DIY advice, not legal advice.
