SystemInformation::UserInteractive Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether the current process is running in user-interactive mode.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public:
property bool UserInteractive {
	static bool get();
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the current process is running in user-interactive mode; otherwise, false.

When the UserInteractive property is false, do not display any modal dialogs or message boxes, as there is no graphical user interface for the user to interact with.

This property is false only when called from a service process or from a Web application.

System_CAPS_noteNote

This property is supported only on Windows NT 3.51 or later, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and the Windows Server 2003 family.

The following code example lists all properties of the SystemInformation class in a ListBox and displays the current value of the property in a TextBox when a list item selected.
