Black Screen Runtime Application

Hiya,

I have created a Runtime running in Kiosk mode.

When I run it, the rest of the screens (two screens) go black.

This means the user can not access anything else on the desktop (not related to the Runtime Application) whilst they are using it.

Is this normal?

What I would like to see is the application in its "popup" window sitting on the desktop with everything else on the desktop visable.

Am I missing the point of running in kiosk mode?

Cheers

You are not missing anything, that is the way it is.

I believe filemaker intended Kiosk mode to be just that. Some type of kiosk that maybe a customer would access or someone that shouldn't be granted any access to the computer itself. That is also why you need to explicitly have a quit button and cannot press a keyboard shortcut to quit.

... That sucks...

Re-create the runtime *without* the kiosk option selected.

But then I get the Filemaker window as the background to the runtime window (see attached). What I would ultimately like to see is just the window as it appears in Kiosk Mode - without the black screens!!!
