Chrome Fullscreen API

According to this article Google Chrome 15 has a fullscreen JavaScript API.

I have tried to make it work but failed. I have also searched for official documentation in vain.

What does the fullscreen JavaScript API look like?

Answer

The API only works during user interaction, so it cannot be used maliciously. Try the following code:

addEventListener("click", function() {
    var el = document.documentElement,
      rfs = el.requestFullscreen
        || el.webkitRequestFullScreen
        || el.mozRequestFullScreen
        || el.msRequestFullscreen 
    ;

    rfs.call(el);
});

I made a simple wrapper for the Fullscreen API, called screenfull.js, to smooth out the prefix mess and fix some inconsistencies in the different implementations. Check out the demo to see how the Fullscreen API works.

Here are some functions I created for working with fullscreen in the browser.

They provide both enter/exit fullscreen across most major browsers.

function isFullScreen()
{
    return (document.fullScreenElement && document.fullScreenElement !== null)
         || document.mozFullScreen
         || document.webkitIsFullScreen;
}


function requestFullScreen(element)
{
    if (element.requestFullscreen)
        element.requestFullscreen();
    else if (element.msRequestFullscreen)
        element.msRequestFullscreen();
    else if (element.mozRequestFullScreen)
        element.mozRequestFullScreen();
    else if (element.webkitRequestFullscreen)
        element.webkitRequestFullscreen();
}

function exitFullScreen()
{
    if (document.exitFullscreen)
        document.exitFullscreen();
    else if (document.msExitFullscreen)
        document.msExitFullscreen();
    else if (document.mozCancelFullScreen)
        document.mozCancelFullScreen();
    else if (document.webkitExitFullscreen)
        document.webkitExitFullscreen();
}

function toggleFullScreen(element)
{
    if (isFullScreen())
        exitFullScreen();
    else
        requestFullScreen(element || document.documentElement);
}
