I can run my application in Fullscreen (SL4) but when I do it, resizing does not work anymore and I have to quit Fullscreen mode.

Is it a bug from behaviour or a limitation from Silverlight 4 ?

Hi nimp,

I've tried to reproduce your issue running the sample available with the SL4 behavior in Fullscreen but resize works correctly.

I am using :
private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
Application.Current.Host.Content.IsFullScreen =

This is strange, I tried again but I can not resize at all in Fullscreen.

I am using a HM TouchSmart IQ542fr with Windows 7 Ultimate.

Maybe I can try with a ready to use sample on Internet ? it would avoid
some conflict with my VS2010 compiled version (which is your sample

Thanks !

Ok, I got it. If you set FullScreen from code scaling is not working (if you hit F11 instead it works).

Will open a work item to investigate.
