Flash shows smaller then expands to fullscreen....

This is the first line in the Actions frame of my flash CS3 (AS2) project: fscommand ("fullscreen", true);

When it is published and played, the show is about the size of the stage but then, in the blink of an eye, it expands to fullsize.

How do I get rid of this 'intermediate' state and have the thing show fullscreen immediately?

Might try the fscommand("allowscale", "false"); which will disable resizing. Not sure on how to stop that transition effect specifically.

Interesting effects with that. I tried it both after and before and without the "fullscreen" command.

When used after, it didn't make any difference. When used before, the screen filled up with white but the movie it stayed at the stage size and didn't go fullscreen at all.

When used without the fullscreen command, the movie remained stage-size but it was on top of my desktop.

So, still hoping there's a solution out there....

I FOUND A WORK-AROUND!
I insert a frame at the beginning of my Actions layer. This frame only contains the fullscreen command.

All other frames were then shifted so they start at frame 2.

This gives frame one time to size the movie. Then it goes to frame 2 and everything is fine!

You can try placing the fscommand in the first frame but in the last line below all the code and try once.

I found a workaround on my own by trial-and-error. But I'm leaving this for the KB because it might help someone else. AND because maybe someone will come up with a reason for this problem in the first place (and a subsequent solution) sometime in the future.
