I'm looking to make my Catalyst app display full screen at runtime, with no system menu or browser chrome. I've done this many times in Flash using fscommands. What's the best way to accomplish this through Catalyst? Building to AIR or .swf?
I've tried taking the Catalyst .swf and loading it into a Flash CS4 movie clip, and making my .fla full screen using fscommands (which I could publish as an .exe). But the Catalyst .swf doesn't play at runtime—it only shows up as a black screen. I made a quick testing .swf with Flash and it plays fine. Same file path (root directory), just different name. For some reason the Catalyst .swf doesn't play when loaded into a Flash movie clip.
I've seen some references to doing this in Flex, but not sure if and how those techniques cross over to Catalyst.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I've got the Catalyst .swf loading and playing through Flash now. It was an AS2/AS3 incompatibility issue.
I'd still like to know if there's a native way to accomplish this using only Catalyst.
I am looking to do this very same thing, I was wondering if you were able to fingure out how to do this in Catalyst?
There is a control file located in the installed directory for the AIR application: "installed_Directory\META-INF\AIR\application.xml" but making changes to this file does not seem to effect the application.
Please let me know if you found a way to create a full screen AIR application with Catalyst.
