turn off fullscreenmode in 6.5

Post by JackD » Tue Dec 03, 2013 9:13 pm

I have an app that was developed using older versions of LiveCode so I included code to rescale all of the stacks included in it. When I run it it 6.5, I can't turn off fullscreen mode.

I've tried this code in the preOpenStack (both individually and in combination) Is this the correct code?

the working screenRect and the screenRect always return a value less than the actual resolution of the device. These are the values I used to calculate object sizes and locations. It appears to return the resolution divided by mobilePixelDensity()

Is it possible to turn off fullscreenmode so 6.5 acts like the older versions?

Same problem with my stack in 6.5 it does not scale properly. It goes fullscreen "half way"....LOL. Was going to submit bug report...but couldn't send my stack..... so I'm glad someone else did.
