Hide Menubar and TaskBar in Standalone

Hi Roger and Scott,

Scott, should I assume that using both taskbar and menubar is  
needlessly redundant?

Roger, when I first started messing with this, it was my  
understanding that you need to hide taskbar and menubar to work on  
both platforms. So, I use these handlers in my stack script.

If be glad to hear of better ways to do this...

on preOpenStack
   if the environment is "development" then
     --- do nothing because I want the menus to be displayed when  
editing the stack
     hide menubar -- only Mac - also hides dock
     hide taskbar -- only affects windows
     set the decorations of this stack to empty
     set the backdrop to "black"
   end if
   --the stack will automatically center itself whenever it opens.
   set the rect of this stack to "0,0,768,600" -- Adjust to match the  
size of your stack
   set the loc of this stack to the screenloc
   toplevel this stack
end preOpenStack
on closeStack
   show taskbar -- only affects windows
   show menubar -- also hides dock
end closeStack

take care,
