Full Screen - Flash Player - How can a user allow any requests from the server to goto full screen without a prompt?

I am using a web conferencing application.   A moderator that is sharing their desktop can share their screen in full screen mode.  

The switch to full screen prompts the user.   Basically, its says it is going to FULL SCREEN MODE... yes or no...

Is there anyway for a user to allow (or always allow) the screen to change from full screen to regular with the prompt appearing?

Sorry, re-read that...

So no prompts just moving from regular screen to full and back again without any prompts...

I don't think that's possible for security reason...  For example, I could create a screen that looks exactly the same as Windows login screen...  If I were able to go fullscreen without the user's authorization, it'd be quite easy to pick up their login credential...  Don't you think???

cyanblue is correct its a security issue the owner of the PC is in control - unless the client is running your web conference software application to display the stuff then you could put a bit of javascript in there but even then the clients browser needs javascript enabled.

Ok, makes sense, but I've found some settings that allow you to add exceptions.   I am not really looking for a blanket, no prompting.

That is something I found, which is the setting for Flash.  I add my site, but I don't think this is what I am looking for.  I was hopinig someone might know if there is something similar to this but to remove the requirement of prompts.

Or "remember" that I am allowing it.  

Your "hack" sounds  very plausible! and I can see why they might not want to remove the prompt, but I was hoping if anyone knew a way to remove the prompting.

No, that setting has nothing to do with what you are trying to do...

I have not been able to address the issue.  In speaking with the original developpers of the application, it appears this is a limitation.
