[Xerte] Re: Xerte Toolkits window size

The display full screen option probably is working but you won't see the
effect in the editor window which is constrained to 800 x 600.

Close the editor and click preview then maximise the window or make your LO
public, click properties and view the public link - both those methods
should expand the stage to the browser windows size.


Changing the label size isn't an option within XOT but if you export your LO
and then edit locally in Xerte Desktop you can do this. Open
dragDropLabel.rlm in Xerte and change the drawLabels script e.g. changing

tempClip.drawRect(0,0,tempClip.getTextWidth(), 50 + (12 -
STYLES.defaultSize)*-1 / 2); will make the box height 50px

You could probably be cleverer than that and change the height dynamically.

Subject: [Xerte] Re: Xerte Toolkits window size




I'm testing out the updated version of Xerte Toolkits but having a problem
when trying to create an interactive drag and drop activity with a large


Is there any way to increase the size of the content area from the standard
800x600? I can see options in the Object properties to display full-screen
but it doesn't seem to have any effect? Problem being that I've got a
"lifecycle wheel" that our care tutors would like to have as a label
activity but it doesn't fit properly in the standard Xerte window.


(all our PCs use 19" or larger monitors at 1280x1024 so I'm not worried
about the window size being larger)


I'd also like to have 2-line labels (as some of the text is quite like),
although putting a <br> tag in the middle does the trick it also makes the
border look weird as Xerte only puts it around the first line of the label.
Is there a change I could do in the code somewhere that would make this
