Window Style
« on: September 18, 2007, 08:39:12 am »
When I pass sf::Window::Fullscreen to the window constructor I get this message in the console window 'the requested video  is not available, switching to a valid mode' but then it goes to fullscreen mode. I was wondering if there is something i am doing wrong to get this message. here is the code section

sf::RenderWindow window( sf::VideoMode( 1280, 750 ), "Map Editer", sf::Window::Fullscreen );

1280x750 is not a valid fullscreen mode.
Try 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600, ...
You can even get the list of valid modes for your system, read the tutorials to know how to do it.

It means that it switches to a valid fullscreen mode (you requested fullscreen, so it just keeps it).
