PBI RS Jan 2021 - change the display size to full screen

Hello,

 

It is still not possible in PBI RS "January 2021" to choose a full screen display mode.

 

When this simple feature will finally be available?

 

It has already been used for several months in Power BI service : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/power-bi/consumer/end-user-report-view

 

Today, using "rs: embed = true" in the url is not practical for an end user.

 

Thanks for your help.

You can provide your users with a bookmarklet that contains the necessary javascript to apply ?rs:embed=true to the current URL. Not ideal, but they'll be able to full screen any report with one click once they set that up in their browser.

Applying "?rs:embed=true" to the end of URL will reload the current page and lose all state.

So I came up with a version that will keep current state and trigger browser's native full screen mode.

Works great on Firefox 87 and PBIRS 2021-Jan.

 

javascript:(function(){elements = document.getElementsByClassName('pbi-frame');element = elements[0];if(element.requestFullscreen) {element.requestFullscreen();} else if(element.mozRequestFullScreen) {element.mozRequestFullScreen();} else if(element.webkitRequestFullscreen) {element.webkitRequestFullscreen();} else if(element.msRequestFullscreen) {element.msRequestFullscreen();}})();

Thank you for your reply.

Indeed it is not the ideal that I confirm.

I know the solution to wrap javascript in a bookmark, it works fine.

 

The javascript code :

 

javascript:(function(){window.location.href = window.location.href + "?rs:Command=Render&rc:Toolbar=false";})();

 

 

However, it is difficult to support hundreds of users in this type of manipulation, the tool should offer the functionality natively.

Unfortunately, there is no permanent fix for this issue yet. Microsoft Idea  · Full Screen mode in Power BI Report Server.

Adding string at the end of the URL is currently the only workaround.

 

http://URL?rs:embed=true

Or

http://URL?rs:Command=Render&rc:Toolbar=false

Thank you for your answer.

I know all these solutions well, but we have been using this service for several years now and this type of functionality must be natively embedded.

The end user simply needs a button.
