I need to display a flash movie to take up the ENTIRE window from a browser. Meaning I do not want the users to see any part of the browser window.
See an example of what I mean at: http://www.egomedia.com
I would greatly appreciate help in achieving this, as it is quite crucial.
Hope you can help,
You can download the pz_chromeless.js from egomedia: http://www.egomedia.com/js/pz_chromeless.js
It's a sweet trick, but it can be difficult to implement. Good luck!
Here's the JS header:
// Chromeless window v1.0 (OPEN)

DO NOT make your window take up the entire screen like that, it's incredibly annoying!
Really? I thought it was pretty damn cool.
In any case, the chromeless trick is just for removing the standard application window edge. You can still have a chromeless window that isn't maximized. See the microbians site: http://www.microbians.com.
Welcome to FlashKit, Bill!
This Boardroom forum isn't really the place to get answers for questions such as yours. If you read the 'guidelines' at the top of the list, you'll see why.
If you had supplied us with an email address, I would have done you a favour and moved this thread to a forum where help is available and emailed you to let you know where it had gone.
I suggest that you post this question in the General Help forum.
yeah the way the microbians use it is cool
BUT everyone (I think) is lost without the task bar, and comletely annoyed!!!!

the way egomedia does it is with what is no doubt meant to be a maze of HTML pages in a frameset, a 'sniffer' .swf, and the seeming lack of an index.html. one of my co-workers figured it out, but it's not fun to edit. fullscreen is rarely necessary and it's becoming and old schtick around here.
also, be aware that the latest version of Microsoft's IE browser(jeez, now i forget the name) doesn't support this trick, and i dont think netscape 6 does either.

having wondows that take up the entire screen is the most annoying thing in the world.
if you have more that 1 window open (as i usually do) and you get a fullscreen popup AAAAAAAA HATE IT
use the cromeless window - first posted the question on pop-up windows a few days ago < i know very little about jave/html etc > I found it easy to set up
use the actionscript thingy in actions call - FScommand
and choose fullscreen.
When you use it make sure you put an exit button or something saying press escape to exit fullscreen mode
Well if the man wanna have it here it is :
It falls over all the bars inside windows.
Insert this in the index.html over the </head> tag .
Just change the "your.html to your movie.html .
Thanks for all the help ... I finally got it using my own scripts and the help of some of my colleagues in the development dept.
In some cases the script I've developed works more reliably than egomedia's. You can check it out and give me your feedback at http://www.tetraconnect.com
Jelve ... Sorry for posting in the wrong section ... I was under some massive pressure to get this done, and I suppose I did not take the adequate time to read all the guidelines.
As for it being annoying to have a fullscreen. I think the way we've done it is pretty tasteful. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
Ugly with a capitol F
just make sure theres ALWAYS a close button visible!!!
thats what makes it so annoying!, and never cover up the taskbar at the bottom of the screen!

the preloader needs real improvement. that egomedia-esque 'sweeping boxes' effect took way too long to load. i woulda alt+f4'd it if i wasn't curious to see it.
