what is the correct syntax to force a site to open completely(taking up the entire screen ) regardless
of what resolution and monitor size the user is using?

Here you go:
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script>
function openNew() {
var w = screen.availWidth||screen.width
var h = screen.availHeight||screen.height
     window.open('pageToOpen.html','openWindow','toolbar, menubar, location, width='+w+', height='+h);
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="#" onclick=openNew();>Click</a>
</table>
</body>
</html>

this looks alot like opening a child window, if it is, I need to know if there is a way to force the parent window to open entirely?

how would I call this script?

would it be <body onload="?".

the above has no function name(ie previous was "function openNew()"  would this one be if I was to choose resizewin()? or am I off track here?

well, you don't really need a function for your purposes...

the window is already created, so you don't have to wait for the document (body onload) to load to do this.

the code will automatically execute whenever the page is loaded or refreshed.

but if you really wanted to you could do something like

<SCRIPT>
var w = screen.availWidth||screen.width
var h = screen.availHeight||screen.height
function full()
{
window.moveTo(0,0)
window.resizeTo(w,h)
}
window.onload=full
window.onresize=full
</SCRIPT>

and then it will stay full screen :)
also, I believe that window.onload is identical to <body onload>

however the first method is perfectly adequate.

There is a problem with setting screen to a fixed size the way you did it, that is not a BIG problem, just a hassle... it isn't TRUELY maximise...?

You'll if you take your mouse to the bottom of the screen, that it will allow you to resize it.  Which you don't get when you're maximised.  (you'll also notice the top icon would show "Maximise", not the "sub minimize" as it should... it's not truely maximized =(

But there is no alternative, (it seems?)

I know there is a function that allows you to set the min/max status of your window........ but I can't find it anywhere even on msdn :/

that only works in ie, and it only works on new windows.

since the window covers the screen, I don't see what the difference is...the little in the corner doesn't really matter.
