Dear experts,

Is it possible to make a "fullscreen" window of a window opened without javascript, like the "zoom" function of dailymotion (http://www.dailymotion.com) ?

Are you referring to changing the user's browser's width and height, or creating a content element the full width and height of the user's browser window?

I not speaking of a new window created by javascript. I am speaking of a div that would take up all the space available, ideally going  over the browser borders... I don't mind whether it's an activeX or something else...

Ok, what you're looking for is here:

It works in all browsers I tested. Only issue is Opera adds 16 pixels to the length of the page (because the scroll bars aren't there to begin with). I tried to find a solution to get rid of those 16 pixels, but had no luck.

Hope that helps.

I'm sorry. I may not have provided what you're looking for. I think the feature you're requesting is a flash-only feature, and info can be found here:

If you're using flash, it should be fairly easy to implement.
