glutFullScreen(3GLUT)                GLUT                glutFullScreen(3GLUT)



NAME
       glutFullScreen - requests that the current window be made full screen.

SYNTAX
       void glutFullScreen(void);

DESCRIPTION
       glutFullScreen requests that the current window be made full screen.
       The exact semantics of what full screen means may vary by window
       system. The intent is to make the window as large as possible and
       disable any window decorations or borders added the window system. The
       window width and height are not guaranteed to be the same as the screen
       width and height, but that is the intent of making a window full
       screen.

       glutFullScreen is defined to work only on top-level windows.

       The glutFullScreen requests are not processed immediately. The request
       is executed after returning to the main event loop. This allows
       multiple glutReshapeWindow, glutPositionWindow, and glutFullScreen
       requests to the same window to be coalesced.

       Subsequent glutReshapeWindow and glutPositionWindow requests on the
       window will disable the full screen status of the window.

X IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
       In the X implementation of GLUT, full screen is implemented by sizing
       and positioning the window to cover the entire screen and posting the
       _MOTIF_WM_HINTS property on the window requesting absolutely no
       decorations. Non-Motif window managers may not respond to
       _MOTIF_WM_HINTS.
