How to Open IE Window in Full Screen Mode

P: n/a
Hi

My program is a C# Windows application and I am using the following
code to open an IE window:

Process p = new Process();
p.StartInfo.FileName = "iexplore.exe";
p.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Maximized;
p.StartInfo.Arguments = "www.google.com"
p.Start();

I would like to open the browser window in Full Screen Mode, is this
possible from my C# code or will the user need to press F11 once they
are in the IE window?

Btb, what are the available arguments to pass to iexplore.exe?

Thanks
Orekin

HI,

Take a look at this resource:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/178058/en-us

That doc is for IE 4 (and higher), but don't know if IE 5-6 added some new
options.

Maybe you could use -k, to start IExplore in Kiosk mode. Otherwise I'd
suggest to try to "inject"a F11 key in the keyboard buffer (the Win32 API
keyb_event() allows for that).

Regards,

Octavio Hernandez

You might see if Internet explorer iexplorer.exe takes anyh command
line parameters that let you toggle the "enhanced full screen mode"
There is a difference between Maximized and Full Screen. The full
screen is a custom mode supported only by that application and not
windows and therefore you need to refer o IE documentation to see how
to toggle it.
