    HTML5 fullscreen comes in 2 types, the older full browser window method which was always a bit finicky, and the newer html5 true fullscreen method (these are not the official names for these, just my descriptions)

    the older HTML5 full browser window “fullscreen” will apparently not work from an iframe for the larger window it is embedded in, so if you are using panopress to embed pano as .html files html5 fullscreen will prob not work – if you are embedding panos as .xml files, it may work, but it may also not work without modifications to your themes css and template files

    as of this writing (september 2012), krpano & pano2vr are both in the process of updating to the newer html5 true fullscreen method, pano2vr 4.0 beta is already released w html5 true fullscreen support, and krpano will soon support in an update to 1.0.8.15 – panotour pro should support it soon as they incorporate the updated krpano

    it should be fairly simple to make panopress support html5 true fullscreen, so we will be working to get this supported as soon as possible

    as of krpano version 1.0.8.15 – build 2012-10-05 html5 fullscreen api (html5 true fullscreen) is supported

    note that iOS devices like iphone and iPad do NOT yet support html5 “true” fullscreen api 🙁

    also see the krpano notes below re: iframes

    anyway, now that this is built into both krpano & pano2vr, we can begin to sort out panopress support

    • Since version 1.0.8.15 build 2012-10-05, the krpano HTML5 viewer is also supporting the HTML5 Fullscreen API. With it and when the browser supports it (btw – iOS currently not), it is possible to switch to fullscreen mode also with HTML5.
    • For detecting if the fullscreen mode is supported and available, the fullscreensupport xml devices setting and the actions device.fullscreensupport variable should be used.
    • Notes about <iframe> usage: When trying to use the HTML5 Fullscreen mode from an viewer within an iframe, it is necessary to add the allowfullscreen parameter (and the non-standard browser versions of it) to the <iframe> declaration. This tells the browser that this iframe is allowed to switch to Fullscreen mode.

    Hi Sam,

    Although you indicate your v.  1.0.8.15 allows true full-screen HTML5, I cannot seem to get it to work. Is 1.0.8.15 the release version available for download at wordpress.org?

    Please see the final two examples here:

    1.0.8.15  refers to krpano, not panopress

    latest version of krpano can be downloaded here

    http://krpano.com/download/

    if you are using pano2vr, download the latest version here –

    http://gardengnomesoftware.com/pano2vr_download.php

    otherwise, you must consult the documentation for whatever pano player you are using re: html5 fullscreen as it is a function of the player, not panopress

    Thanks for the clarification, Sam.

    So… “anyway, now that this is built into both krpano & pano2vr, we can begin to sort out panopress support…” is still the operative statement; you have yet to build in full-screen support? I’m guessing that’s the case since my pano2VR files work in full screen when loaded without using your plugin:

    hi howard

    html5 fullscreen is not a function of panopress, but of the pano player you are using

    so if the player you are using supports html5 “true” fullscreen api, panopress should not have a problem

    if you are having problems, start a new topic and we will get you sorted
