Return Value

Returns an integer value specifying the current parental level in the DVD Navigator, or -1 if parental management is disabled.


A player application is responsible for enforcing parental controls. The player parental level is a value set by an application than can be used to indicate the highest parental level the current user can view. When the DVD Navigator encounters a new parental level, use this method to determine whether the new level is greater than the level that was set by the application through SelectParentalLevel.
