Today I was converting an old Windows based application to a web application and I thought of giving users the same feel as if they are using a Windows application. Thus I came to the requirement of opening a web application in full screen mode. I found a very elegant solution that I am sharing here.
Using the Code
window.opener = 'secondWindow';
Points of Interest
- This works perfectly in IE.
- In Firefox it does not get rid of the address bar.
- In Google Chrome this does not work as it shows a popup blocker message.
