    Activate fullscreen within Timer

    Joao Galli

      Hi guys,


      I have an flex project that must be fullscreen all the time, but windows always remove this fullscreen.


      What I would like to do is to activate full screen in a timer, I have all the code to do it but the screen just doesn't redraw.

      If I push any button it does redraw.


      I need to know how to activate this redraw automatically inside the Timer execution without any human interaction.


      Does someone knows how?

            Hi and thanks for your time,


            I already tried to use this invalidate...(), redraw...(), reprint. But nothing happens.


            My code is simple, one part of it is to set FULLSCREEN, and it works because I already use it in a Button action. The other part is a Timer that I know it is working because of logs.


            package project.flex.timers
                 import flash.display.StageDisplayState;
                 import flash.events.TimerEvent;
                 import flash.utils.Timer;
                 public class FullScreenTimer extends Timer
                      private var main:Main;
                      public function FullScreenTimer(main:Main)
                           this.main = main;
                           super(60000, 0);
                           addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, action);
                      public function action(e:TimerEvent):void {
                           main.stage.displayState = StageDisplayState.FULL_SCREEN;


            Thanks again for your help.

              If this is a web app (not AIR) security rules prevent going to FULLSCREEN

              except on mouse or keyboard activity.
