window.fullScreen=true is not working

I would like to open my html page in fullscreen mode. I tried to execute this javascript in body's onload event handler.

window.fullScreen = true;

But unfortunately that doesn't seem to be working. Is there any other way with which we can achieve the same.



I dont think you can set the windows properties by using the onload event. Try setting the properties as you open the window. This should work...

<div onclick="'', 'Stackoverflow' , 'type=fullWindow, fullscreen, scrollbars=yes');">
    Hello Stackoverflow!

This is unadvisable as it results in unexpected browser behviour for the user. For this reason, many browsers no longer let unprivileged scripts modify this setting.

For example, from Mozilla Developer Center

With chrome privileges, the property is read-write, otherwise it is read-only.



I'm pretty sure that most browsers block this nowadays as it's annoying.


Chrome 15, Firefox 10, and Safari 5.1 now provide APIs to programmatically trigger fullscreen mode.

See this blog post for details.

Answer, windowname, ',type=fullWindow,fullscreen,scrollbars=yes');

take it from link :


Try this script

<script language="JavaScript">
function fullScreen(theURL) {, '', 'fullscreen=yes, scrollbars=auto' );

For calling form script use


or with hyperlink

<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="fullScreen('fullscreen.jsp');"> 
Open in Full Screen Window</a>
