Azure Maps Fullscreen Control module

An Azure Maps Web SDK module that provides a control to display the map in fullscreen mode.

Note that not all browsers support fullscreen mode, see for a list of current browser versions that support fullscreen mode. By default this control will hide itself if the browser it is loaded in does not support fullscreen mode. You can also use the FullscreenControl.isSupported static method to check support programmatically.

Getting started

Download the project and copy the azure-maps-fullscreen-control JavaScript file from the dist folder into your project.


//Create an instance of the fullscreen control. By default it will toggle the map in and out of fullscreen mode. 
var fsc = new atlas.control.FullscreenControl({
    style: 'auto',

    //Optionally pass in an HTML element or its ID to have the fullscreen control toggle it in and out of fullscreen mode instead of the map.
    //container: 'myHtmlElement'

//Optionally, add events to monitor when the fullscreen mode is entered and exited.'fullscreenchanged', fsc, function(isFullscreen){
    //Do something.

//Add the fullscreen control to the map.
map.controls.add(fsc, {
    position: 'top-right'

You can check to see if the browser supports fullscreen mode by using the static FullscreenControl.isSupported method.

atlas.control.FullscreenControl.isSupported().then(isSupported => {
    //Do something.
