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 sys- tem. The intent is to make the window as large as possible and disable any window decorations or borders added the window system. The win- dow 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 mul- tiple 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. SEE ALSO
