This code sample is named FullScreen. This sample demonstrates how an application can make full use of the device screen for displaying content using several shell APIs. Using these APIs, the sample application provides a "Full Screen" menu option that allows the taskbar and softkeys to be hidden. Once a softkey button (or the back key on Smarphone) is pressed the taskbar and softkeys are redisplayed.
