Is there anyway to make it so that when someone clicks the hyperlink control that the window that pops up is in fullscreen mode, target = new?
thanks,

the above example will open the  window in a spedified height and width. you may not know it that what resolution is client browser using , so fixing the size of window will not be a proper solution.

What u can do is u can open the page normally in a popup and specify the code into the page to resize according to screen.

put the following code in the <head> tag of html page

<script language="JavaScript">
window.moveTo(0,0);
window.resizeTo(screen.width,screen.height);
</script>

It's all covered in the link I specified (and more). Here the complete code...

window.open('http://www.google.co.uk','','left=0px,top=0px,height=' + screen.height + ',width=' + screen.width + ',scrollbars=auto');
