          Flash can change browser window fullscreen.

          But, Director(Shockwave) cannot change browser window fullscreen.

           

          i'm waiting Director 12.

            budapi also allows you to open a window full screen.  I use the plug-in a lot.  You use the "baOpenURL" option, type in the ink, and set the state to "Full", IIRC.

              The OP seemed to be talking about Shockwave and Buddy API isn't SW-safe so can't be used there.

                yes.

                 

                It has not tried yet though it is thought that it is possible to be likely to do if localconnection(swf and dcr on browser) is used.

                (but this approach is tricky)

                 

                F11 key hit can browser window fullscreen.

                but. The user pushes the button, and I want to make it to fullscreen,like "StageDisplayState.FULL_SCREEN" in as3.

                  I think this ability is unique to the Flash Player and that the Shockwave Player simply can't do it. If you make a Flash movie fullscreen in the browser and use the Alt + TAB key combination (in Windows) to see what other windows are open, there is an instance of the Adobe Flash Player independent of the browser, and if you TAB to another window it is closed - this is the fullscreen representation of the Flash movie. Even if you messaged a Flash movie in the same page to do this, I expect that all you'd get would be the Flash movie occupying your entire screen with the browser (and Shockwave) left as-is. I think the best you'll get is for your Shockwave movie to scale to fit as much real-estate as is available in the browser window.
