JavaScript/Vbscript + HTML + Parent Page + FullScreen(Urgent)

I need onload for a page to resize to fullscreen, and run without titlebar or scroll bars. I have seen many posts about loading a child that way from a parent, but I need the original one to do the same thing.

Basically like running an IE browser in kiosk mode without having to specify -k as the page is being called from the GetURL command in Flash.

Thx.

You can't...without altering how the program is executed.

If you can make sure the users all start the browser in the way like you described above: IEXPLORE.EXE -k http://www.xxx.com/xxxx.html They would get the site in fullscreen...if you cannot have that done...unless you rewrite internet explorer...there is no way..

Sorry to say this to you...

But you can't...all you can do is what you already said...open a window, put that in fullscreen mode...and that can be without titlebar or scrollbars.

And to be honest...I would HATE it...if I ever came upon a page that would be able to do that...I choose whether or not a page is shown full screen, not the maker of a website...

Ok well, let me ask this another way then. Does anyone know of a flash command, perhaps even fscommand exec or geturl parameter that would allow me to have flash initiate the call ? I know it's in the wrong section but someone might have an idea. Like in run doing IEXPLORE.EXE -k http://www.xxx.com/xxxx.html ?

And although i agree with DreamMaster, my ceo doesnt beleive me. Can I get a few more dozen agree's with dreamMaster lol.

Thanks.

and one other question, when you say cant, do you mean you cant by you cant do it without an exploit, or cant because there is no way whatsoever. The machines I plan to have these running have no user interaction whatsoever. They are machines installed in locations that display different things. It is not meant to exploit any group, just use IE in an innovative way.

Thanks,

Cristian.

Can I load a page that is off screen ? So that the page doesnt even show up on the screen ? That page in turn calls one that is fullscreen since the parent cant ?

I don't get what you are asking...do you mean you want to load a page...don't show it anywhere...but still use that page to load another to fullscreen?

If so, the answer is no...code on a page can only be executed if it is shown in the browser.

Max.
