menu bar and dock visible in full screen mode problem

Post by Steve Denney » Wed Sep 05, 2018 7:54 am

When I put a stack into fullscreenmode on my windows computer it completely fills the screen.

Code: Select all

set the fullscreenmode of stack homeStak to "letterbox"
set the fullscreen of stack homeStak to true
The windows task bar (equivalent to the Mac dock) is then hidden behind the stack, as is the desktop.
Looks like I’d expect it to, like, for instance, most games do.
However, on my Macbook pro, now running High Sierra 10.13.6, the top menu bar and the lower dock are both visible and in front of the stack. This renders full screen mode unusable.
I rarely use Macs. I’m not very good with them. I’m currently testing a Mac version of an app.
Is this a Mac setting (perhaps something I’ve inadvertently changed), or something I can fix with LiveCode script?

Maybe add a "hide menubar" command?
