    Getting maximized projectors to stay maximized

    I have a flash exe which is essentially a main menu. From this main menu, you can load a number of different swfs. My problem is that when I maximize the main menu and then load a new swf in, the maximized window goes back to the default size. Can anybody help?

    TIA

    You must be loading the new movie into the root right? If you do that, the projector will resize itself to the size of the new movie. One solution is to add fscommand("fullscreen", "true") to the first frame of each movie that you load. If you load the new movies into level 1 or a movie clip it, the projector won't resize itself. Finally, you can try one of the many third party projector tools out there. I know my product, SWF Studio, won't resize the playback window once you've set it to the size and position you want, the others should work the same.

    That makes sense. Thanks!

    Out of curiousity, I did a project last year in Flash 5 and I didn't seem to have this problem. Perhaps this is an MX behaviour?

    BTW, does SWF Studio give you the option to disable the maximze button in the projector? (or do you know any way to do this?)

    Thanks again.

    Yeah, fscommand("Win.ShowMaximizeButton", "FALSE") will do the trick in SWF Studio (there are also command to take care of the close button and the minimize button). Alternatively you can remove the title bar completely, which gets rid of all the buttons, and put whatever face you want on the projector

    Download a copy of Flash Studio PRO and you can completely customize the window and also lock it into maxmized.
