Javascript - Full Screen on Second Monitor? (Bump)

P: n/a
I am working a project where I am using two monitors and using
HTML/Javascript to display the information I want.

I have my main stuff on the main monitor, but when each page loads, I want
an image to load fullscreen on the second monitor as well. I am using
800x600 resoution on both.

If I use:

function openWindow()
{
mainWindow = window.open("thispage.htm","pagename","fullscreen= yes");
}

that works fine for the main monitor.

I have then tried to use the second monitor to open an image by using the
same type of thing:

function imageWindow()
{
openImage = window.open("image.jpg","imagepage","fullscreen=ye s");
openImage.moveTo(801,0);
parent.focus();
}

I am trying to use it with the onload command as well:

<body onLoad="imageWindow();">

I am passing arguments to these functions but simplified it here.

Anyhow it will only open it full screen on the first monitor. I can position
it and move it to the second monitor if it is not full screen just fine.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Mark

[window object].moveTo() and [window object].resizeTo() do not work on windows
opened with fullscreen=1 or fullscreen=yes. This was a security addition to
Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 to prevent chromeless windows from mimicing
or spoofing existing UI elements.
