Bug : Windows controls not visible in fullscreen mode

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Thu Apr 02, 2009 12:00 am

I just noticed that buttons and edit boxes do not show up in fullscreen.

I had to take the fullscreen mode out of my maze tutorial because of this.
They sort of flicker into view for a fraction of a second when the mouse moves over them, but that's about it.

Maybe someone else could confirm it?

:D

This is a limitation of Direct-X; some people seem to still be looking for ways around it, but there doesn't seem to be one.

Ahh, ok.

That's a shame, but at least we can create "fake" controls if we need them that bad in full-screen mode.

And at least it's not a bug in Construct. :D

Ultimately a developer - or us when we get time one day - may implement direct-x controls, which will look better and run in full screen. There's several existing libraries and classes for them that I found on google.
