Class EXTFullScreenExclusive

  • public class EXTFullScreenExclusive
    extends java.lang.Object
    This extension allows applications to set the policy for swapchain creation and presentation mechanisms relating to full-screen access. Implementations may be able to acquire exclusive access to a particular display for an application window that covers the whole screen. This can increase performance on some systems by bypassing composition, however it can also result in disruptive or expensive transitions in the underlying windowing system when a change occurs.

    Applications can choose between explicitly disallowing or allowing this behavior, letting the implementation decide, or managing this mode of operation directly using the new AcquireFullScreenExclusiveModeEXT and ReleaseFullScreenExclusiveModeEXT commands.
