    Initial Window

    Saka Nurudeen

      Hi everybody!


      I would like to know how to make an initial

      window described in application.xml

      centered in the screen whatever be dimensions

      of screen.


      Please help.

          Yes easily you can do the following on applicationComplete:


          nativeWindow.x = (Capabilities.screenResolutionX - DEFAULT_WIDTH) / 2;

          nativeWindow.y = (Capabilities.screenResolutionY - DEFAULT_HEIGHT) / 2;


          That should center your initial window.

            You have to set it via code, not in the application.xml


            add a listener to the creation complete event


            <mx:WindowedApplication ... creationComplete="creationComplete()" />



            then set x and y like this:


            private function creationComplete():void {

                 nativeWindow.x = x;

                 nativeWindow.y = y;



            Of course you need to do some calculation to find out monitor's resolution (by means of flash.desktop.Capabilities)
