I was wondering if anyone new a command or way to make my flash movie-projector full screen. You see, I have created a slideshow for a party, but when I maximize the screen, the top bars, and parts of the desktop still show. This doesn't look very nice, you know! So I would like it if the slideshow opened up  on the entire screen. Is there anyway to do this? Just wondering!

fscommand("fullscreen", true);

That should do the trick.

hi, you should also set your allowscale properties, depending on whether you want the movie to scale to fit the screen or to make up the space around your movie with the background color.

fscommand("allowscale", true); //or false depending on what you want to do.
