Hello Experts

I have a page that currently uses this:
window.open("https://www.mysite.com/folder/page.aspx", "_blank", "location=no,menubar=no,status=no,toolbar=no,titlebar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,channelmode=yes,fullscreen=yes");

When the page loads and it calls this javascript a new window is opened with no toolbars or anything else.  Unfortunately this is treated as a popup.  How do I get around this?  Is there something I can do without using window.open?  I want the page to be in fullscreen mode basically without the toolbars/address bar etc.

It is a pop-up.  There is no other way to do this unless you completely modify the browser.

Is there anyway to force the browser to go fullscreen on page load then?

I need to actually load the page full screen without user interaction.  Basically they are following a link that leads to my page that needs to be fullscreen.  Is there a way to do this without having the user click another button/link?

You can't do that unless you create your own custom web browser.  This is very easy to do in VB.NET.

I apologize.  To be honest, I should be home sleeping today.  I am a bit under the weather.

I will get back to you.  I do remember having the same problem as you are having, and I do believe that this is impossible to do.  I am sure there is a better alternative, though.  I will do a bit of research.

Well I found a way to do it and it works.

<BODY onload="top.moveTo(0,0);top.resizeTo(screen.width-2,screen.height-2);">

I can't get rid of toolbars and stuff but that will get me pretty close.

Thanks for the help.
