Can't seem to listen for FullScreenEvents

Hi everyone,

I'm creating an AIR application.

I've created an AppMediator to mediate the main application with mediatorMap.mapView(Main, AppMediator) where Main is the compiled class.

In the AppMediator's onRegister method I tested if I could get events by just listening for MouseEvents and those work correctly. But if I try to use the eventMap to map a listener to view.stage and listen for FullScreenEvent.FULL_SCREEN, then I never get those it seems.

Has anyone else tried this and if so were you successfull and if so... how??

    here is the code in my app mediator

    `override public function onRegister():void

            trace("[AppMediator] - [onRegister] :: ");
            eventMap.mapListener(view.stage, FullScreenEvent.FULL_SCREEN, onFullScreen);
            eventMap.mapListener(view, MouseEvent.CLICK, onClick);
        private function onClick(e:MouseEvent):void 
            trace("[AppMediator] - [onClick] :: ");
        private function onFullScreen(e:FullScreenEvent):void 
            trace("[AppMediator] - [onFullScreen] :: ");

    I've figured it out. It's because the stage during the onRegister method is not the same stage property as when I'm actually going into/leaving fullscreen since I'm moving the view around to different windows in the AIR app
