    Full Screen capture


    I tried the "Taking pictures with MMAPI' ( http://developers.sun.com/mobility/m...icles/picture/ ), but when I run it on the Nokia E51 ,I just see the top half of the screen being displayed.

    How do I make it display on the whole screen?
    I tried all resizes, setFullScreen etc.. but have had no luck.

    Appreciate any help

    I am guessing that you are trying to make the "viewfinder" in the MIDlet as big as possible. Unfortunately you cannot rotate that (which would me the optimal solution I guess) and yoiu are already having the video as big as possible (if I understand your description correctly)

    Thanks for the reply.
    I'm not even trying to rotate.
    I am trying the 'viewfinder' to cover the complete screen when I am using the phone in vertical position.

    Basically, I am trying to use Google's http://code.google.com/p/zxing/ to read QR codes.The understanding is that a snapshot is taken from the video control, but since the video control only displays half of the screen, the snapshot is of lesser quality than could be achieved with a full screen 'view finder'.

    The feature to do a full screen display seems to be a basic one. Why is it so hard to have this in the j2me/mmapi API?
    There are a few other apps( our guess is that it is written in C++) which show the viewfinder on the complete screen.
