fullscreen background color setbackground & preferences doesn't work

edited January 2014 in How To...

Hi all,

I'm sorry I accidentally marked this question as answered: http://forum.processing.org/two/discussion/2573/fullscreen-background-color#Item_3 This is a summary of what I've done so far. So I'm exporting my sketch to an executable (Processing 2.1 on Windows 7). When I export to full screen mode the background colour is grey even though I've set it to white in my sketch. But I've tried both frame.setBackground(new java.awt.Color(255, 255, 255)); And change run.present.bgcolor=#666666 in my preferences.txt to #ffffff. The latter keeps reverting back to the default #666666.

I hope someone has another suggestion, my deadline is tomorrow. So any help is greatly appreciated. TIA, danielle.

    If you just want your sketch to cover the whole screen, set the size to size(displayWidth, displayHeight, yourRenderer); and add the following function to your code:

    boolean sketchFullScreen() {
        return true;

    Or in case you want your canvas to be smaller than the JFrame, add the following function call to your setup() function:
