Microsoft DirectX 9.0

DisableScreenSaver Property

The DVDAdm.DisableScreenSaver property turns the system screen saver on or off.


[ bDisabled = ] DVD.DVDAdm.DisableScreenSaver

Return Values

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether the system's screen saver settings are disabled for the DVD player application; TRUE means the settings are disabled.


This property is read/write with a default value of true. When viewing a DVD-Video disc, a user typically does not use the mouse or keyboard for extended periods of time. The MSWebDVD ActiveX® control therefore disables the system screen saver by default. Object
