Changes

Today I got my first glasses ever and two new books about flash and ActionScript.

So those are the books I got:

I have to say that it feels weir to have glasses. I think I have to stick with them a little and then every thing will be back to normal. And by the way, I didn’t know how much I was missing without the glasses 😀

Links Menu System

This is a XML based links menu system that I used in some projects of mine. You can easily add links or category titles to the list.

Full Screen Preloader

This is an older preloader that I usually use in my project because is very easy to use. You just have to copy and paste the preloader movieClip in your project and that’s all 😉

Full Screen in Flash

This is my first post and I want to share the code for the full screen flash app.
This code works fine in ActionScript 2.0 so you can use it in your old and new projects as well.

So this is the code you need to use:

function toggleFullScreen(){
	if(Stage["displayState"]=="normal"){
		Stage["displayState"]="fullScreen";
	}else{
		Stage["displayState"]="normal";
	}
}
 
fullScreenBtn.onRelease = function(){
	toggleFullScreen();
}
