Window / "Windowed Fullscreen" mode?
« on: November 29, 2012, 11:08:23 pm »
Hi there,  I'm quite new to SFML, currently looking to learn more about it.

One of my favorite things about many modern games is their addition of a "Windowed Fullscreen" video option in addition to regular windowed and regular fullscreen, where the game appears to be fullscreen, but the user is able to alt tab and have windows floating over the game.

I tried creating a window with the dimensions of my desktop + sf::Style::None, but this seemed to force regular fullscreen mode.  Is there any way to achieve windowed fullscreen, and if not, are there any plans to support it?

EDIT: This is what I am referring to

EDIT 2: So it seems like it isn't full fullscreen mode, but the alt-tabbing was quite iffy on my laptop, while on my desktop it is a bit better, but still sometimes the taskbar does not reappear and the screen flickers on alt-tab
