Flash 8 comboBox dropdown issue

While working with an interactivity which consisted of Flash 8 comboBox component – I am across an unusual problem. While the stand-alone SWF file worked fine – but when this SWF was externally loaded into another SWF file – the comboBox dropdown menu did not show-up when the comboBox down arrow button was clicked.

The solution to fix this problem is to set _lockroot = true on the frame where the comboBox has been placed.

Fullscreen Mode in AS2

To enable fullscreen mode using AS2 for a SWF file embedded within HTML page, add the parameter allowFullScreen in the object and embed tags in the HTML page and set its value to true.

param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"

Note:
1. This only works for SWF files published for Flash Player 9 and above
2. Full-screen mode does not work if wmode is set to opaque or transparent
3. When in full-screen mode, all keyboard input is disabled except for the keyboard shortcuts which exists the full-screen mode.

add a button with the following code which will toggle the browser window between Fullscreen and Normal mode when clicked

on(release)
{
if(Stage.displayState == "normal")
{
Stage.displayState = "fullscreen"
}
else
{
Stage.displayState = "normal"
}
}
