UIApplication.IdleTimerDisabled Property


If true, indicates that the screen should not dim even when no input is occurring.

public virtual bool IdleTimerDisabled { [Foundation.Export("isIdleTimerDisabled")] get; [Foundation.Export("setIdleTimerDisabled:")] set; }
member this.IdleTimerDisabled : bool with get, set

Property Value


The default value is false.



The idle timer dims the screen after some amount of time has passed without user interaction. Application developers who wish to keep the screen fully powered can set this property to true. For instance, games whose input is restricted to the accelerometer may set this value to true.
