I am working a project where I am using two monitors and using
HTML/Javascript to display the information I want.

I have my main stuff on the main monitor, but when each page loads, I want
an image to load fullscreen on the second monitor as well. I am using
800x600 resoution on both.

If I use:

  function openWindow()
  {
    mainWindow = window.open("thispage.htm","pagename","fullscreen=yes");
  }

that works fine for the main monitor.

I have then tried to use the second monitor to open an image by using the
same type of thing:

  function imageWindow()
  {
    openImage = window.open("image.jpg","imagepage","fullscreen=yes");
    openImage.moveTo(801,0);
    parent.focus();
  }

I am trying to use it with the onload command as well:

  <body onLoad="imageWindow();">

I am passing arguments to these functions but simplified it here.

Anyhow it will only open it full screen on the first monitor. I can position
it and move it to the second monitor if it is not full screen just fine.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Mark
