I am trying to do something that seems easy but it is kicking my butt...
I have a web app that I need to run full-screen, with no browser chrome, and I want to hide the mouse cursor (we are using a custom remote). It is running under WebKit on a Mac (OSX 10.6.x), so doing things like modifying the mouse cursor via the OS is not an option.
I thought making a simple AIR app would get me where I want to be, but I am experiencing a bunch of issues. First off, the code is DEAD SIMPLE:
<mx:WindowedApplication> with a <mx:HTML> tag in it. The HTML tag has location specified, pointing to my index.html (the page will never change).
What is happening is:
What I want to end up with is an AIR app that I launch, which seamlessly loads the page, full-screen, as if it were a TV UI. No mouse cursor, no window/browser chrome, no borders, just the page. Once that page is loaded, I need to be able to pipe mouse and keyboard events into it (which seems trivial, but that is before I ran into the keystroke eating, wherever that is happening).
Is this possible? Am I doing something wrong or not doing enough?
Any input GREATLY appreciated!
Does anyone have ANY input on this? Please?
