SysInfo Control

See Also   Example   Properties   Methods   Events

The SysInfo control allows you to respond to certain system messages sent to all applications by the operating system. Your application can then adapt to changes in the operating system if necessary.




Using the SysInfo control, you can monitor information provided by the operating system as well as respond to system-generated events. The features of this control fall into one of these groups:

  • Events tied to changes in the system (DisplayChanged, TimeChanged, and SettingChanged events, for example).

  • Power status events and properties (PowerSuspend, PowerResume events and ACStatus and BatteryStatus properties, for example).

  • Plug and Play events (DeviceArrival, DeviceRemoveComplete events, for example).

  • Operating system properties (OSVersion and WorkAreaHeight properties, for example).
