Post subject:  making a video go full screen

I'm new at RB and know nothing about coding. I made an app that plays movie, just using the movieplayer control that I drag and dropped over a window. Movies plays fin, but play at it's normal size 1280 *720, Is there a property I can change where the user can just full screen it ?

I'm looking for a simple solution as I dont know much about coding.

tks guys !

I don't think there is any property in MoviePlayer to play a movie file in full screen. You can make the window full screen to do the trick.

I also interested to know if there is any better/easy way to do so. :idea:

Ok, and how can the user make the window go full screen ?

I tryed with autoresize, but the video doesnt follow along.

Is it mac os x or Windows?

I think the autoresize property only work for Mac os.

That's depends on you how you show the option for go full screen. You may add a menu like "View -> Full Screen" or a show a contextual menu.

And to make a window full screen,

Window1.FullScreen = true

After dragging the MoviePlayer to the window, make it exactly the same size of that window.(Top = 0, Left = 0, Width = Window width, Height = Window height)
Then Just lock the left, right, top and bottom of the MoviePlayer control and make sure "AutoResized" property is set to false.

Now you should see the video in full screen.
