Maximize window on startup
« on: November 30, 2014, 07:09:30 pm »
It'd be convenient to have an api call to create a window which was maximized on creation.  I've searched for this and the answer was that SFML is not a dedicated windowing library. . .  However, maximizing a window is one of the options that might be added to SFML 2.

It's honestly not a huge deal, but I'm wondering if there's any room for reconsidering this now that SFML 2.0 has been out for a while and the SFML team has expanded quite a bit.

Thanks for your time.

I think this will be added at some point, too bad it isn't in yet. It certainly won't make it for SFML 2.2, but feel free to add a ticket on GitHub, so it won't get forgotten.

As a note: For SFML 3 there most likely will be a distinction between window properties and states, so then we might get a cleaner API, for now we're mostly stuck with what we have right now and can only add a few new things. ;)
