How to know if monitor is physically attached

Recommended Posts

michaelslamet

The subject tell it all: how to know if monitor is physically attached?

Some of our machines are headless all the time. If monitor psyhically attached to it,

there is quite a big chance that somebody is snooping on it.

I need to create AutoIT script to detect that.

Thank you :)

If you disable the mouse and keyboard you won't have to worry about it because the screen will be locked when you're not using it.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
