Hi Tom
I think this is a very valid point and a feature, which should be in FX8. I had several discussions with customers about this and we had to work around this every time.
I'd prefer b) any day, because I don't want to leave this decision to the one running my app.
Just my 0.02$

Subject: Make Fullscreen Warning overlay none-mandatory


Before I file a JIRA-Ticket I'd like to start a dicussion here to find out if my point of view is completely wrong.

If you currently put a Stage into Fullscreen mode it displays the message "Press ESC to exit full-screen mode.".

The first problem with the overlay presented is that while the Group is big enough for the English-Text it looks like nobody ever checked this with the german translation ("Dr\u00FCcken Sie ESC, um den Vollbildmodus zu beenden.") - I'll file a JIRA for it anyways.

Still this is not my problem. What I'd like to suggest is that I as a developer can turn of the forced overlay.

I could think of multiple possibilities:
a) through a System-Property (-Djavafx.quantum.fullscreenwarning=false)
b) through an API on the Stage

What do you think about a) or b) is there a chance to get something like this in FX8, or is it too late already? Do you see any reason turning of the overlay could cause problems?

Since the quantum sources are now available I'd be able to implement a desired feature using a) or b) and provide a patch.
