tough Kiosk/Fullscreen question

P: n/a
I am working on a client project that has a requirement where,

- if a user clicks a button it launches into full kiosk mode, no
toolbars etc.....

I've seen many examples out there, seperately for IE and Firefox - but
nothing seems to work perfectly.

Can someone please help me? Please contact me here or by email.
Kindest regards, Carly

That "button" they need to click - in IE and Firefox - is F11, problem
solved.

It's damn close, and it works. You should consider whether it can
be written off as a solution to the requirement.

If you are not aiming your page at the internet, but, e.g., at a
corporate intranet where you can make assumptions about the clients
used, you should say so. There is no general solution suitable
for internet deployment.

You can *try* to open a window with no chrome, using

window.open("urlOfPageToShow","nameOfWindowForReus e",
"scrollbars=yes,fullscreen=yes");

You will see that different browsers handle this differently. Even
the "fullscreen" property is not understood by all browsers.

Generally, opening windows is not recommended these days, since popup
blockers can ruin the effect.

Why not? You got an answer - and one that works. What do you want,
someone to write the code for you?

That's not "Kiosk Mode". With IE, you get that by starting IE with
iexplore -k http://www.microsoft.com/

F11 doesn't get you that.

True, but you can't get Kiosk mode programatically in a default
environment. The closest you can get is F11 and that is cross-browser.

Yep, you are most certainly right. That stopped being possible after
IE 3.0 era.
