    Full screen mode with flex air on Windows

    !Superman!

      My application can go into fullscreen mode. But it always 'opens' behind Windows Media Center, and I need my air app to display above the media center.

      I found this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb189148.aspx At the overlaying part it says "It is not possible to overlay anything other than a dialog box or a prompt over the Windows Media Center full-screen video experience."

      I assume I might need to write a C# app to display a dialog over the media center? Any other ideas are much appreciated.

      My code:

      allwaysInFront is set to true on the WindowedApplication

      this.stage.nativeWindow.activate();
      this.stage.nativeWindow.restore();
      this.stage.nativeWindow.maximize();

      stage
      .displayState = StageDisplayState.FULL_SCREEN_INTERACTIVE;
