View Full Version : Creating EXE which will fit on any Screen

03-30-2010, 03:59 AM
Hello everyone,
we are trying to design a Flash Presentation and looking to make it in such way that it could fit on any screen resolutions like:

- On a 800 x 600 projectors
- on a 1024 x 768 projectors
- on 1280 x 800 screens
- On 1280 x 720 LCD TVs
- On 1366 x 768 LCD TVs
- On 1900 x 1080 LCD TVs,

We want all our stage elements to get re-sized to any of above screen resolutions. Searching for right solutions on internet but no luck yet. If someone can suggest us any possible way will be really a great help for us. Thanks in advance.

Put this on its own layer on the first frame, spanning the whole timeline.

fscommand("fullscreen", "true");

I do tradeshow and online presentations and this is all I've ever needed to use. Its good to head towards a good medium in the flash file dimensions though. Like if the presentation is going to be mainly on HD monitors, build in 1080, if laptops, build at 1024, etc.

Good luck.

You can actually put that command just about anywhere. It will switch your EXE into fullscreen mode as soon as it's called.

If you want your movie stretched or squished to fit the screen (not always desirable) then you can set Stage.scaleMode (http://www.adobe.ca/support/flash/action_scripts/actionscript_dictionary/actionscript_dictionary678.html) as well.
