I would like to create a little application to install
pictures as a wallpaper. First I would make the app to get the
screen resolution and decide which version to show (800x600;
1024x768 and 1280x1024) but that shouldn't be a problem (I think)
On the screen would be a few thumbnails and one big version
which is selected at the moment with a button "set as wallpaper". A
simpler version would be to include an instruction 'right-click on
the picture and set as wallpaper' but apparently right-click menus
aren't shown in the previous applications I made (or is it just a
setting?) A cross-platform solution would be great but I get the
feeling that it requires dedicated authoring on PC, OS9 and OSX
since it's interacting with the system settings.
I'm not an experienced Director user but maybe you figured
that out already...
Big thanks in advance!
BuddyAPI (www.mods.com/au/budapi) has a function called
that is cross-platform and can transform any bmp file to
both PC and Mac (OS9 or OSX). There are also functions to get
the screen resolution. It is free to use up to 2 functions.
I've done this before using the DirectOS xtra from
http://www.directxtras.com/DOS_home.asp?UUID=1691016 It worked finre for Mac and PC. Also you should use the
BudAPI xtra to get the file pathnames. Took a little work figuring
it out, but it works well.
