Anyone know of a way to make applications use fullscreen mode. I am setting up a Mac for an Art exhibition and I want to somehow set the program to click into full screen display. I have seen this done before but am not sure exactly how to do it. My guess is it is application specific.


Any help would be appreciated.

You can hide the menubar and resize an application window with Akua Sweets OSAX

Yes, it is application specific.
What application is it?

Any App that will run Director Files, iCab doesn't seem to like the accompanying HTML document for some reason while all the other browsers I have will open it but do not support Full Screen View.

here's how to do it with any browser, Applescript and Akua Sweets.

--------------------------
try
tell application "Internet Explorer"
set oldWindowBounds to (reposition window 1)

if (oldWindowBounds is not {0, 38, 800, 600}) then
set menu bar visibility to true
reposition window 1 to {0, 38, 800, 600}
else
reposition window 1 to {0, 0, 800, 600}
set menu bar visibility to false
end if
end tell
on error m number n
end try

I'm not really what you might call an Apple Script expert, but I downloaded Akua Sweets and entered in the text as written than ran the script and it just kind of repositioned my window and then created a response box called "The Result" that said: "{0, 38, 1160, 38}"

Any ideas?
