why the resolution of my SDL program is smaller ?

Recommended Posts

[size="5"]hi,
i notice that when i open a window in SDL, the resolution is smaller than my monitor's. my monitor's resolution is 1920x1080, but when i open a SDL window with screen width and heigth of 900x500, it cover almost all my screen. can i open a window with the resolution that my monitor is capable? please show me how or explain why not.
thanks

You set the size of the SDL window when you call SDL_SetVideoMode. You can use SDL_GetVideoInfo() to get the monitor resolution.
[code]const SDL_VideoInfo* videoInfo = SDL_GetVideoInfo();
SDL_SetVideoMode(videoInfo->current_w, videoInfo->current_h, 0, SDL_SWSURFACE|SDL_FULLSCREEN|SDL_NOFRAME);[/code]
