jQuery.fullscreen

jQuery Fullscreen plugin allows you to open any element on a page in fullscreen mode without using Flash in all modern browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera). If this feature is not supported by the browser then element will be just stretched to fit the screen without switching to fullscreen.

Fullscreen API is natively supported in Chrome 15+, Safari 5.1+, Firefox 10+, Opera 12.1+ and IE 11. It is also present in Firefox 9.0, but it is disabled by default. You can be enable it by setting fullscreen-api.enabled to true in about:config.

Usage

Request/exit fullscreen

<div id="some_selector">
    Block to be displayed in fullscreen.
</div>

<script>
    // open element in fullscreen
    $('#some_selector').fullscreen(options);
    // close fullscreen
    $.fullscreen.exit();
</script>

Currently the following options are supported:

  • overflow {'hidden'}: 'overflow' css-property, which is set to an element when it is being opened in fullscreen;
  • toggleClass {null}: class name which is toggled when an element changes its 'fullscreen' state;

$.fullscreen object methods

  • $.fullscreen.open(element[, options]): equivalent to $(element).fullscreen(options);
  • $.fullscreen.exit(): exit fullscreen mode;
  • $.fullscreen.isNativelySupported() {true|false}: returns true if browser supports Fullscreen API natively;
  • $.fullscreen.isFullScreen() {true|false}: returns true if there is an element opened in fullscreen.

Events

fscreenchange

fscreenchange event is sent to window.document when some element on the page changes its 'fullscreen' state. Three parameters are passed to an event's handler:

  • jQuery.Event object
  • fullscreen state (true or false)
  • Element

fscreenopen/fscreenclose

fscreenopen and fscreenclose events are sent to an element when it's being opened in fullscreen (or exited fullscreen mode).

fscreenerror

fscreenerror event is fired on the @document@ if requested fullscreen operation could not be performed.

Security notes

Due to security reasons, calls like $(...).fullscreen(), $.fullscreen.open(), and $.fullscreen.close() are allowed only inside user generated event (such as click, keydown, etc...). This means that the following code will not work:

$(function() {
    $('body').fullscreen();
});

because fullscreen here is called directly without any action from user.

Browser support

Native

  • Firefox 10+
  • Chrome 15+
  • Safari 5.1+
  • Opera 12.1+
  • Internet Explorer 11

Fallback

  • IE 8–10 (Should work in IE7 as well, perhaps with some minor issues)
