Is there ANY way to create a full screen toggle button in captivate? I've tried everything I can think of. I am creating an interactive training product that I would like for users to switch to "full screen mode" if they wish (both html5 and flash). Is this possible??

you can execute  javascript codes:

//【fullscreen】

var docElm = document.documentElement;

//W3C 

if (docElm.requestFullscreen) { 

    docElm.requestFullscreen(); 

}

//FireFox 

else if (docElm.mozRequestFullScreen) { 

    docElm.mozRequestFullScreen(); 

}

//Chrome等 

else if (docElm.webkitRequestFullScreen) { 

docElm.webkitRequestFullScreen(); 

}

//IE11

else if (elem.msRequestFullscreen) {

  elem.msRequestFullscreen();

}

//【exit fullscreen】

if (document.exitFullscreen) { 
        
document.exitFullscreen(); 

else if (document.mozCancelFullScreen) { 
        
document.mozCancelFullScreen(); 

else if (document.webkitCancelFullScreen) { 
    
document.webkitCancelFullScreen(); 
}
else if (document.msExitFullscreen) {
      
document.msExitFullscreen();
}

In the case where you are displaying your materials in an IFRAME of an LMS,  you need to use this instead:

// check to see if you're in an iframe

let i = parent.document.getElementsByTagName("iframe")[0]

        if (i == null) { 

            i = document.getElementById("main_container")   // nope, you're ok..  main_container is from captivate.

        }

        i.webkitRequestFullScreen()   // assuming this works for more than chrome.

    });

Hello Zensoft, 

I try to add this 2 button in my project in order to switch between fullscreen and window mode. 

I never use "javascrip" command, it s new for me

I add your command line in my action like you can see in my cap.

But nothing happend, when I test or publish my project in exe file for example.

 

Could you help me ?

Thank you.

 

Best regards,

 

Chris

The JavaScript based solutions will need the project to run on a browser, and as I can see, you are publishing EXE so these will not work for you. For that publish the project as HTML5.

Pulbishing to exe means you are using SWF output, do you realize that?

Hi all ! 

Since my post, I succed to use this widget in using Html Publish mode, that's true. 

But the widget seems to work only with the version 9th of Adobe Captivate ! 

 

Thanks for this technical highlight. 

Best regards,

Chris

Hmmm, not with 2017? I will leave you to the JS experts in that case.

There is an error in the code you used for IE. I also would NOT use the comments in the code. Try this:

This is for the "FULL_SCREEN ON" button:

var docElm = document.documentElement;

if (docElm.requestFullscreen)
{
docElm.requestFullscreen();
}
else if (docElm.mozRequestFullScreen)
{
docElm.mozRequestFullScreen();
}
else if (docElm.webkitRequestFullScreen)

docElm.webkitRequestFullScreen();
}
else if (docElm.msRequestFullscreen)
{
docElm.msRequestFullscreen();
}

This is for the "WINDOW" button:

if (document.exitFullscreen)
{         
document.exitFullscreen();
}
else if(document.mozCancelFullScreen)
{    
document.mozCancelFullScreen();
}
else if(document.webkitCancelFullScreen)
{
document.webkitCancelFullScreen();
}
else if(document.msExitFullscreen)
{
document.msExitFullscreen();
}

Do you have it attached to a button. You can't just execute the code. I don't have my code with me at the moment, it's on another computer. I'll try and remember to post it tonight.

Yes, it's attached to a button. If I press the button the project goes into fullscreen mode (without forcing landscape mode). But this only works for Desktop and android.

Greetings and thanks in advance

Hello thank you. I just tested the script, it works. Do you know how to remove the full screen button in full screen mode, then only make the button appear to exit full screen? Thanks for your help.

 

Sorry for my English. I used Google Translate
