Syntax


Public Shared Function GetDefault() As SimpleOrientationSensor

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: SimpleOrientationSensor

The default simple orientation sensor or null if no simple orientation sensors are found.

Remarks

This method only returns values for hardware that has been integrated into the computer by the manufacturer. (The simple orientation-sensor readings are derived from an accelerometer.) A null value will be returned if the specified sensor is not available in the system.

When a system is in Connected Standby, a call to the GetDefault method will return immediately with a null result.
