Options/Full Screen (+hot key [F11?]) checkbox menu to resize splitpanes to video full view (and back)

Now one can double-click the splitpane (draggable) resize ruler to resize 1st split area to max size (can double-click it again to resize back and once more to make the other split part max and yet once more to restore the original split ratio).

The issue is that the splitpane ruler isn't very visible (there's another issue logged to fix that), you have to move the mouse between two split areas (or near the edge of the window if one of the two spit areas of the splitpane is maximized) to see special cursor (left-right or up-down double pointed arrow for horizontal and vertical splitpanes respectively), then can double-click there.

To have video play at fullscreen thus you can currently double-click the horizontal and the vertical rulers at the right and the bottom of video area to maximize its width and height. To restore you then double-click near the right and bottom edges of the LvS window (when mouse shows a double-pointed arrow).

(Had tried different color for the splitter but didn't look nice, need some dots drawn on it to show it has a draggable handle [sad Microsoft isn't doing this themselves])

just added "Full Screen" button to video controller toolbar of LvS to help with this maximize right and bottom splitter for the video and to click again to restore to original splitters position, will be available in next LvS release (by next week or earlier). I need though translations for the term "Full Screen" (Greek is "Πλήρης Οθόνη") for Spanish, Hungarian, Romanian and Portugese if anyone is interested to contribute

Fixed layout issues with FullScreen button, now doesn't flash screen when applied and locks splitters so that you toggle fullscreen button image stays consistent (have to press it again to exit fullscreen)
