IE 5.0 + full Screen from itself

There was some discussion on the Macromedia Flash Forum about Full screen from the page itself. I just thought I will share that too here. You may alternatively have the click to be onLoad of the Body so that the browser goes fullscreen on load itself.
Have the folllowing Javascript

and on your link put a href=""javascript:fullscreen();"

    How do I get back to a regular browser screen. Do I have to shut down the browser to do this? Hitting F11 doesn't do it.

  • Well the link can be any link on your page, it can be something like "Launch Full Screen".

    Apologies - hope I'm not being stupid but can somebody show me a site where they have got this "fullscreen" code to work. I've played around for a bit -trying to get the fullscreen effect "onLoad" but can't make it work.

    Thanks,

    Chris 😉

    Hi

    Any chance to get this to work on IE 7??
    The example above does not work on IE 7, only on IE6

    Cheers
