Help fullscreen on ipad/iphone


First of all congratz on making krpano, it is a great panorama viewer. I have one small problem regarding full screen mode on iPhone/iPad. I have researched this problem on the forum but didn’t manage to get an answer.

1. I am using normal panorama, not tour, not multi-resolution with krpano 1.17.3 and the panorama is in a div with fixed hight and width, not an iframe.
2. The full screen button does not appear on iPad/iPhone and also on native browser on an Android 4.0.2 phone.
3. I understand that iOS browser doesn’t support full screen mode in HTML5.
4. All the forum links refer to: as a work around... but I don’t understand what I have to do to get it to work.

Can you please explain step by step how to make the button to appear and to work?

I have just purchased krpano and I am not yet familiar with the files, that’s why I would appreciate if you can explain step by step. Put this code "...." in file "x".

Best regards.

Apparently it works if you remove the verification that the browser has native HTML5 full-screen. *thumbup*

Later edit: it depends on CSS proprieties of that DIV, position: absolute affects this and also it depends of the surrounding divs proprieties. I decided to just wait for iOS and Safari to implement this. *pinch* I think full-screen HTML 5 API on ipad/iphone is a demand from all dev's, not only from krpano users.

Since krpano get's updated as soon on of the browsers gets updated I am confident it will work fine then.

as soon as iOS would support the HTML5 fullscreen API, krpano should automatically be able to use it (without update).

Have you had success removing the HTML5 fullscreen verification? If so, how does one go about it?
