Full Screen exits on Reload (including deployed Release updates)

Alex Hart 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 3

I know version releases automatically load on my devices. It seems this causes a dashboard that was previously set to full screen to exit full screen (experiencing at least on chrome on Windows 10). Minor issue since this doesn't happen to often. If this can be avoided, great. Otherwise maybe we can consider other open feature requests for url based full screen or the like to automatically return to full screen.

There is a serious limitation in the Full Screen API that only allows to trigger full screen mode during a user initiated event. At the moment, I don't know if there is a way to overcome this.

That's an interesting fact and frustrating limitation. Well... Let's keep this Topic open for research and hopefully we'll discover a workaround one day. Maybe a forum participant will even provide some insight.

I think this may be a duplicate bug report (for the general "Reload" scenario); but; yes... we need to research how we might be able to "lock-in" full-screen mode in the most common predictable scenarios.


New Versions / Release deployments aren't going to be very frequent, however, this issue is hopefully not a major inconvenience.


Detecting that ActionTiles was in full screen mode before reload and restoring it after reload is complete might be possible... but it is not trivial.
