Hi there,

I start to really enjoy Phoenix. For just a couple of occasions, I would need to have it run in what is called kiosk mode (fullscreen). This feature would be helpful on *both* the linux and the win32 platform, but any platform would already help a great deal.

Searching didn't result in anything on this topic, and 'phoenix --help' didn't offer anything. Does anyone know if or when such a feature will become available?

Thanks for any hint!

Cheers
Martin Gross

You should of posted this in the Pheonix General forum, but I will answer your question. Just go to view>fullscreen or press F11.

Hi,

Thanks for your info! However, F11 solves only half my problem. I want to have Phoenix *started* in Kiosk mode, with no user intervention necessary. Netscape, if I remember right, had a switch on command line to achieve this ...

Sorry for not being clear on my point ...

Cheers
Martin

Read a tutorial about XUL and just make your own Kioskmode that looks exactly like you want it.

since telling someone to go do it himself is usually not terribly useful...

have you checked out the <a href="http://kiosk.mozdev.org">mozilla kiosk extension</a>? i don't know how it is (not sure it works at all), but it seems like something to look at, anyway (if only to help code one yourself...)
