Simple toggle for fscommand ("fullscreen", "true"); then on next click flase

Hi all,

I am trying to create a simple fscommand that when clicked changes from true to false. Then on the next click for flase to true etc / on off etc.

But I cant seem to get it to work. All I am doing is changing the true/face attribute, when the button is clicked it goes to frame 2 (for a different button face) then when the button in frame 2 is clicked it goes back to frame 1. The frame changing is working button not minimize or maximize of the window is happening.

//Frame 1:
MYwindowMode= true;
fscommand ("fullscreen", MYwindowMode);


//button_mc: Frame 1;
on (press) {
this._parent.gotoAndStop(2);
_root.MYwindowMode= !_root.MYwindowMode;
fscommand ("fullscreen", _root.MYwindowMode);
}

//button_mc: Frame 2;
on (press) {
this._parent.gotoAndStop(1);
_root.MYwindowMode= !_root.MYwindowMode;
fscommand ("fullscreen", _root.MYwindowMode);
}


Any help is really appreciative or if someone knows a simpler way to do this please let me know!

Hi complexlty,

 The problem is very simple. When you press on youR button your first actions asks the timeline to
move to the next frame and after that you are using fscommand ,so at this instance the timeline has
already moved and so your fscommand is not getting executed. Just reposition your action and it WILL work.

Change you action to :

//Frame 1:
MYwindowMode= true;
fscommand ("fullscreen", MYwindowMode);


//button_mc: Frame 1;
on (press) {
_root.MYwindowMode= !_root.MYwindowMode;
fscommand ("fullscreen", _root.MYwindowMode);
this._parent.gotoAndStop(2);
}

//button_mc: Frame 2;
on (press) {
_root.MYwindowMode= !_root.MYwindowMode;
fscommand ("fullscreen", _root.MYwindowMode);
this._parent.gotoAndStop(1);
}

 And the answer to your second question is : I dont find any other better way, logic differs from
person to person and so we cant really say this is the best way. Your logic looks good already so
proceed and have fun.

Let me know if this worked.

Thanks,
KP

hey, i just copyied and pasted  your code, and with exception to the fact that this._parent seemed a tad obsolete (I'm assuming that you have the buttons directly on the root) the code is working fine.

You are aware you need to run the swf to test this right?
