Checking if browser is in fullscreen


Possible Duplicate:

Detecting if a browser is in full screen mode




Is there a way to check if a browser is currently in fullscreen mode (after the user pressed f11)?

Something like:

if (window.fullscreen) {
// it's fullscreen!
}
else {
// not fs!
}


Thanks.

Steerpike's answer is pretty good, but my comment:


Thanks a lot, but this answer is not
sufficient for FF. In Chrome I can set
a small tolerance, but in FF the
urlbar and tabs takes a while to
disappear, which means after pressing
f11, the detected window.innerWidth is
still too small.

Answer

In Firefox 3, window.fullScreen works (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/window.fullScreen).

So, you could potentially do something like this:

if((window.fullScreen) ||
   (window.innerWidth == screen.width && window.innerHeight == screen.height)) {

} else {

}
