Setting Screen Saver

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to make a script to configure the screen saver.

My problem is that I'm not entirely sure if I got the SystemParametersInfo constants right. Haven't gotten around to testing the script yet since I'm wary on what could happen if I feed unintentional data to the wrong system parameter set or query.

Can someone help me confirm this?

Credit goes to Volly and WallpaperSet which I based this script on.

#include <WinAPI.au3>
Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

_ScreenSaverSet("C:\WINDOWS\system32\ssstars.scr", True, True, 60)

; ===================================================================
; ScreenSaverSet($path, $active = True, $secure = False, $timeout = 600)
;
; Sets the screen saver to the specified file.
; Parameters:
;   $path - IN - The path to the screen saver file. Can be empty string if $active is false.
;   $active - IN/OPTIONAL - Sets the screen saver active state.
;   $secure - IN/OPTIONAL - Sets the password protect on resume.
;   $timeout - IN/OPTIONAL - Sets the idle timeout for screen saver.
; Returns:
;   Success - Returns 1.
;   Failure - Returns 0 and sets @extended depending on error(s). Errors values are cumulative.
;       1 - File in $path does not exist.
;       2 - Failed to set SPI_SETSCREENSAVEACTIVE.
;       4 - Failed to set SPI_SETSCREENSAVESECURE.
;       8 - Failed to set SPI_SETSCREENSAVETIMEOUT.

Figured it out myself (with aid from google).

Tested on Windows XP 32-bit, not too extensively though.

#include <WinAPI.au3>
Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

Local $return = _ScreenSaverSet("C:\WINDOWS\system32\logon.scr", True, False, 10)

; ===================================================================
; ScreenSaverSet($path, $active = True, $secure = False, $timeout = 600)
;
; Sets the screen saver to the specified file.
; Parameters:
;   $path - IN - The path to the screen saver file. Can be empty string if $active is false.
;   $active - IN/OPTIONAL - Sets the screen saver active state.
;   $secure - IN/OPTIONAL - Sets the password protect on resume.
;   $timeout - IN/OPTIONAL - Sets the idle timeout for screen saver.
; Returns:
;   Success - Returns 1.
;   Failure - Returns 0 and sets @error to 1 and @extended depending on error(s). Errors values are cumulative.
;       1  - File in $path does not exist.
;       2  - Invalid timeout value.
;       4  - Failed to set SPI_SETSCREENSAVEACTIVE.
;       8  - Failed to set registry entry ScreenSaverIsSecure.
;       16 - Failed to set SPI_SETSCREENSAVETIMEOUT.
;       32 - Failed to delete registry entry SCRNSAVE.EXE
