"Kiosk"-like windows on Mac/Win


I’m looking for a way to create a full-screen window that is also hiding the menu bar. While this works relatively simple on Windows, it doesn’t work on OS X, because the default menu bar is always visible.

Is there a way with RS/Xojo to hide the OS X menu bar completely ?

Following the advice on http://documentation.xojo.com/index.php/Window.MenuBar “On OS X, if no MenuBar is assigned to the window, Application.MenuBar is used. To hide the MenuBar, set the MenuBar property to None for both the window and the Application.” fails, because the menu bar is still there.

I also found another site… but it’s unavailable: http://realbasic.tutspolis.com/articles/realbasic-tip-full-screen-mode/

Any hint is highly appreciated (no commercial plug-ins please). :slight_smile:

Thank you,

You can use SetSystemUIMode. Either with MBS Plugin or declare.

Hi Christian,

works great, even the dock can be made to go away. :slight_smile:
