Full Screen start

Post icon  Posted 10 September 2007 - 05:40 AM

Hello..

I want to create a program in c++, which starts out in a full screen.

I know what to put in my program, but i do not know how to make it start out in a full screen.
I think i need a "AltEnter" command, but as I said before I don't know. :blink:

An implementation for Windows can be found here.

This one doesn't simulate the Alt+Enter Keystrokes.
Instead it uses the Windows API.

I know a quick and easy non-programming way to do this. when you start your program, right click the title bar and choose "Properties". In the "Options" tab there will be a section for "Display Options" where you can choose "Full Screen". After you hit "OK" it will basically ask you if you want it to change it for just this once or everytime your program runs. Hope I helped!

PS. Alt+Enter or Alt+Spacebar should exit you from the window.
