Fullscreen flash movie playback
Someone at a recent seminar asked me about how to set swf to play in fullscreen mode. The way to do this is simple. Flash movie playing inside a browser can be activated (user interaction) to play in full screen. The simple way to do this is create a button (say fullscreen_btn) that user can click to activate full screen. The following code is an example:
stage.displayState = StageDisplayState.FULL_SCREEN;
Then publish the swf and html using the “Flash Only – All Full Screen” template which will put a parameter “allowFullScreen=true” for both <object> and <embed> tags.
Note that (1) the full screen mode must be user activated, (2) as soon as the flash movie loses focus it would revert to Normal mode and (3) text input is disabled in full screen mode except when it is an AIR app.
There is a devnet article that described it in greater depth:
