Set the display mode to use when a window is visible at fullscreen.

                             const SDL_DisplayMode * mode);

Function Parameters


the window to affect


the SDL_DisplayMode structure representing the mode to use, or NULL to use the window's dimensions and the desktop's format and refresh rate

Return Value
