View Full Version : Full screen (equivalent of F11 in ie)

04-09-2002, 11:10 PM
Hi all,
after mastering the trick to set the correct movie size to get it to fill the whole screen I have a last (hopefully) question:

How to start my movie in a Full screen window as I would get by pressing F11 in ie or by clicking View- full screen ???

I do NOT want a pop-up window and do NOT want to open up a new window. I just want this to happen by loading an HTML page from scratch (say index.html)

Many thanks all

It's done with JS
put the "getURL"code in the first frame of your MC, with a "self" statment

farafiro m8,
I understand that in flash the getURL method will open an url in the same page if it is set to _SELF.

What I do not get is if I browse to my site by for example typing in ie the url: www.mysite.com how to get that first page it will load (index.htm) full screen, as if I would have pressed either F11 or View-Fullscreen in ie.

I know it must be either plane HTML in the <body> tag of the HTML page or Javascript....
