Full Screen Program

Post by lalama » Tue Jun 06, 2006 2:14 am


I'm new to Revolution, and really like its intuitive interface. How can I create a program that runs only in the full screen, not in a window, like FrontRow, for example?

Hello lalama,

Use The screenRect function to set up full screen.

Here is an example

set the rect of this stack to the screenRect
endMouse up

if you do not want user to select window or full screen put a similar script on openStack

hope this helps.

You will also want to use:

hide menubar


hide taskbar

To hide the menubar on Mac and taskbar on Windows (if you dont' want them showing up).

And maybe:

set the decorations of this stack to empty

All the best,
