We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived. Flash Lite has been removed from all Nokia Asha and recent Series 40 devices and has limited support on Symbian.

This article describes how to disable the Flash Lite compatibility mode in the latest software versions of S60 5th Edition touch-enabled devices.


In S60 5th Edition, a Flash Lite application is run in compatibility mode with on-screen virtual D-pad and softkeys by default. This is typically unwanted behaviour in a full-screen touch application.

How to reproduce

Open a Flash Lite application that does not have the compatibility mode disabled.


The following fscommand disables the compatibility mode:

 fscommand2("DisableKeypadCompatibilityMode"); //must be before "fullscreen" 
fscommand2("fullscreen", "true");

This code can be safely used in all Flash Lite versions, even in those that do not support the DisableKeypadCompatibilityMode command.
