Hello all,

Ok. Here's the scene: I have been working on re-building my portfoilo and using autorun. The executable has been developed in Flash using the windows projector. So far so cool, everything loads and works nicely if I set the exe to run in fullscreen only.

My goal is to not use the fullscreen propery though, I just can't seem to have any control over the broswer that the projector file is being run in. I haven't found any means to control the title bar, window size, or position.

I'm a total newbie when comes to actionscript and Flash. Can anyone offer me some tips? Thanks in advance!

A projector is an executable program, like Photoshop or Winzip. Why do you want to run it within a browser?

If you want to play within a browser, export as a regular swf file.

Yes, you are indeed right. I am interested in trying to control the properties of the actual player that the exe is ran in...not the browser.

Is there anyway?

Thanks

Try using the fs command.

GRReeTings,

Exactly right, using the fscommand only gave me control over fullscreen, showmenu, and allowscale. I was hoping to find some more control commands for the standalone player.

Do you know of some other commands? Because I can't find nada.

Thanks

When creating a standalone projector from Flash, the window size, if not set to full screen, should be the same size as the Flash document. The text on the title bar can be changes using a resource editor such as "Resource Hacker". Changing the screen position of the projector is something I hope someone else will chime in on. any takers?

WOW! :o Jezra!

That Resource app is freakin' sweet. Heh, haven't found the right area to change the title on the projector but I dig play with that toy.

Big thanks!

Changing the titlebar text using Resource Hacker:
Open the "String Table" folder
Open the "1" folder
select the "1033" resource, this is the English Projector Title
Change "Macromedia Flash Player 7" to whatever you want to name your projector
click update script
save

Thank you very much for that info! At the end of the day I've just decided to write my own MFC autorun Application. When I'm done and I'll be sure to put it on downloads for free as I hate paying for silly programs like that. Ta-ta!
