Method for the smooth display change during display mode changes

Disclosed is a method for the smooth display change during display mode changes. Benefits include a pleasurable user experience during display resolution changes.

When a user or application program requests a change of display operating mode, the following event-handling processing occurs:

1) Gradual transition of the display device from a Display state to non-display

2) Change of the display timing to reflect the request

3) Gradual transition of the display device from a non-display state to Display

An example of the visual effect may be a gradual fade to blackness from the color state and then from blackness to a color state with the requested display resolution.

Conventional implementations do not have this capability and leave visually displeasing artifacts on the screen during these display mode changes. The disclosed method does not result in visual artifacts.
