Full-screen mode is now supported in both the stand-alone player and the browser players.

The full-screen mode in Flash Player is initiated through ActionScript and can be terminated through ActionScript, keyboard shortcuts, or by the user switching focus to another window.

    I’m trying to create a button that will make my flash video jump into full-screen mode from my custom flash video player. Do you know the action script needed to do this?

  2. Darren Says:

    Charley, you can use the following code:

    fullScreenButton.onRelease = function (){

    function goFullScreen() {
    Stage.displayState = “fullScreen”;
    function exitFullScreen() {
    Stage.displayState = “normal”;
