Does anyone know why `stage.stageWidth` is not read-only on Flash?

I learned today that stageWidth and stageHeight are not read-only on Flash Player.

Does anyone know why? Does setting this value ever do anything?

According to this, it’s probably a mistake, and the setter never actually does anything.

Alright, I am going to make the Flash externs read-only as well, for consistency. Ran into a project that set stageWidth and stageHeight, but its the first I had seen it.

Now it should be an error on all platforms. If anyone knows of a reason why this is not read-only, let me know and I’ll change the other platforms to work the same way.

Thanks for this link, it’s very helpful :slight_smile:
