Re: [Flashcoders] Flashplayer positioning

2009-04-03 Thread Glen Pike

Hi,

   I tried the Stage.align but this has no effect.

   The stage size is the same as the monitor size.

   Looking into this further, it seems to be an issue with the Window 
Manager - if we run X11 with no Window Manager and start Flashplayer 
from the command line it can't seem to position itself properly.  If we 
run Flash with a Window Manager / Desktop, e.g. xfce, it aligns fine.  I 
am guessing something changed in FP10 relating to X11 but what...

Hi,

  There is stuff offstage, but I am not sure if it is in a guide layer or
not - will check later.

  Why this would happen in FP10 and not 9 though??

Hi,

 I have just setup FP10 in standalone on my Gentoo Linux box and am
running a SWF from the command line in standalone mode.

 The x, y position of my SWF is all wrong - the SWF is positioned mostly
off the screen.  Reverting to FP9 standalone it works fine.

 The SWF is compiled for AS2.

 Does anyone have any ideas about this??

Re: [Flashcoders] Flashplayer positioning

2009-04-03 Thread Glen Pike

Hi,

   This was an issue with the Flashplayer running without a Window 
manager - for some reason FP10 defaulted to a 200x200 pixel sized window 
and ignored the size of the Flash content when run in fullscreen.


   The only way around this is to run a desktop / window manager and 
launch Flashplayer inside that - problematic because if Flash dies / 
exits, the user gets access to the desktop rather than a blank screen  - 
not good for kiosk apps.


   Funny thing is, Flashplayer 9 is fine, so have submitted a bug 
because that's an unexpected change of behaviour that we have no way of 
working around..


   Thanks for your help, maybe this will be useful for anyone with 
similar problems

[Flashcoders] Flashplayer positioning

Hi,

   I have just setup FP10 in standalone on my Gentoo Linux box and am 
running a SWF from the command line in standalone mode.


   The x, y position of my SWF is all wrong - the SWF is positioned 
mostly off the screen.  Reverting to FP9 standalone it works fine.


   The SWF is compiled for AS2.
