ifSpringboardScreen.SetDisplayMode() - what does it do?

SetDisplayMode(displayMode as String) as Void
Sets the mode for displaying slideshow images. This allows images to be either scaled to completely fill the screen (scale-to-fill) or scaled to fit inside the screen (scale-to-fit) while maintaining aspect ratio. Valid display modes are: ...

What does this function do?
Sounds like this is from a slide-show screen but what would it do for a roSpringboardScreen?
What slideshow images, scaled to completely fill which screen? Is there some undocumented meta-magic (like background image) or?

Looks like a copy-paste error. SetDisplayMode changes the way the HDPosterUrl/SDPosterUrl is scaled when displayed in the upper left of the springboard.

Thanks, i tried and indeed seems to affect *PosterUrl only. No full screen anything anyway. Will add it to the ever-growing (and rarely shrinking) list of doc things to fix.
