Full screen mode toolkit?

Question: do any of the gui toolkits that ruby works with allow you to
enter
‘full screen’ mode?

Thank you,

Michael

GTK and its Ruby binding seem to include support for fullscreen mode
(using Gtk::Window#fullscreen). Your window manager (on Linux) might or
might not allow this, no idea about support in Windows.

Qt should support fullscreen mode as well, except as far as I know,
there aren’t any precompiled bindings for Windows platforms if you need
those. The Qt binding webpage claims the public call coverage to be
complete.

Same difference for WxWidgets, except I’d trust its Windows support more
than in the case of Gtk. However, I’ve no idea about the completeness of
the 0.6.0 stable early beta binding with respect to this, and I wouldn’t
quite use wxRuby2 in production yet.

Tk will include support for fullscreen toplevel in version 8.5, refer to
TIP 223.

About vruby, libxm, Xlib, etc. I have no idea.
