I'm about turn turn a prject into a kiosk for a client. It is made up of 4 files and is there a way to hide the other 3 so the client cannot see them? The other 3 are just related info. The only thing i want the client to see is what i tell them to see =).

Is there anything else i should know, tips, tricks, etc? I've already figured out that i've forgotten the "quit" button, lol.

If you mean hiding the icons for the other three files - eg in Windows explorer or on the Mac desktop, then Kiosk mode won't do that for you.

However kiosk mode will eliminate the menu bar when the program is dunning, so ther ill be no Window menu, and no way for users to see or access the other files unless you provide it via scripts or buttons within your solution.

You will, however, want to guard against users launching the 'wrong' file, by placing a start-up script in each file within your solution that re-directs the user to the correct layout in the file that you want them to see. That way, wherever the user starts they will always end up in the same place.
