    Help my son out...

    My son wants to go to art college next year. I'm helping him to put together a portfolio of work on a CD, so that he doesn't have to carry all the pottery and paintings on wood that he's ever done.

    We'll deliver it as a web site with no bandwidth problems. It's all static images, so HTML should be OK.

    I'm looking for hints on scripting (javascript, presumably) which will control any browser so that all you see is what we produce. No menu bar, no status bar, and the only navigation should be what we design into the pages. The javascript documentation I have is very dry and formal. Can anybody suggest techniques or documentation on the web that we would find useful?

    A Director or Flash movie can take over the users screen. That would be perfect for presentation as the user ONLY sees what you want them to see.

    Ohh...don't know if the Fullscreen command works on Mac though. Check it out.

    Hi,
    I found a Javascript that will do just what you want here:

    (After clicking on "Open Window", you need to hit Alt-F4 on a PC or Cmd-W on a Mac to get out)

    Good suggestions so far. How about something really simple - javascript to set the window size on load to - say - 750x550, with no resize options and no navigation menu or toolbar so that the web pages have to contain all the options.

    Qslack...

    Just so you know, CTRL + W works for both Netscape and IE browsers for the PC.

    Thanks for all your help. My son's CD seems to work, and he's been accepted onto the course it was all for.
