Fullscreen with IE 11 not working

Recommended Posts


switching to Fullscreen via a button in IE 11 does not work (PC).

(oallowfullscreen="true" allowfullscreen="true" webkitallowfullscreen="true" mozallowfullscreen="true"  msallowfullscreen="true")

Works fine with Chrome, Mozilla and Edge, though in edge it seems to be using webkitRequestFullscreen().

element.msRequestFullscreen() is getting called but it does nothing.

The platformer example running on the site also does not switch to fullscreen in IE 11.

Tested on windows 7 and windows 10

Is this a known issue?

Can it be fixed?


Many thanks,

interesting... on IE11 melonJS does indeed use the right one (`msRequestFullscreen `), but it then does not anything.

i'm not usually using IE, and last time I tried this was with EDGE, so yes I would say that this is a newly discovered issue with IE11 :)
