Question: I am using DspFullScreen() function to put the display into full screen mode, however some of the pages still show the title bar. I have also tried setting the [Animator] FullScreen=1 parameter, but this also does not work. What is causing this problem? 


Before V5.10
To display a page in full screen, the size of the page must be the same size as the display (or bigger). If the page is smaller than the display, the title bar will still display even if full screen mode is enabled. Check the size of the graphic pages in CtDraw Tools|Page Attributes Dialog to make sure that it is the same as the display resolution. For example 640x480 for VGA, 600x800 for SVGA and 1024x768 for XGA.

The standard alarms pages included with Citect are drawn to allow for a title bar - these pages will not display in full screen mode. Some templates have also been drawn to allow for a title bar, so pages that use these templates will not display in full screen mode. To allow these pages to be displayed in full screen mode, change the size of the standard alarm pages and templates and save them with your project.

V5.10 and Greater
If [Page]DynamicSizing is turned on, a page in full screen state takes up the entire display area (assuming this does not affect its aspect ratio), and it cannot be resized. Also, a full screen page will display without a title bar unless Title Bar is checked in Page Properties (or was checked when the page was created). Resizing pages can result in degraded picture quality. If this is unacceptable, you should re-design the page using the desired resolution. If [Page]DynamicSizing is turned off, full screen has the same limitations as it had in versions of Citect prior to V5.10 (see above).
