XNA Essentials

Game Programming for Xbox 360, PC + Windows Phone


Running a Game in Full Screen in Windows Phone 7

If you create a game in Windows Phone 7 using XNA you may not want the Application Bar to be displayed.  You can hide that status bar in Windows Phone 7 by setting the GraphicsDeviceManager.IsFullScreen property to true.  The default is false.

public Game1() 
   graphics = new GraphicsDeviceManager(this); 
   graphics.IsFullScreen = true;
