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="window.open('http://stackoverflow.com', 'Stackoverflow' , 'type=fullWindow, fullscreen, scrollbars=yes');">
    Hello Stackoverflow!
</div>
Answer

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.

See https://developer.mozilla.org/En/DOM/Window.fullScreen

Answer

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

Answer

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

See this hacks.mozilla.org blog post for details.

Answer
window.open(href, windowname, ',type=fullWindow,fullscreen,scrollbars=yes');

take it from link : http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/linking/linking_famsupp_87.html

Answer

Try this script

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

For calling form script use

window.fullScreen('fullscreen.jsp');

or with hyperlink

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