The Screen Object
By Stephen Bucaro
Maybe your layout is such that the user must have a certain screen size, a
minimum screen size, or a certain color depth for your webpage to look right.
The Screen object gives you that information about the user's sreen.
|screen.width||The screen width in pixels|
|screen.height||The screen height in pixels|
|screen.availWidth||Available screen width after subtracting for task bar|
|screen.availHeight||Available screen height after subtracting for task bar|
|screen.colorDepth||Number of bits used to store a color pixel|
|screen.fontSmoothingEnabled||Font Smoothing as set in Windows Control Panel|

var outStr = "Screen Width= " + screen.width + "<br />";
outStr += "Screen Height= " + screen.height + "<br />";
outStr += "Available Screen Width= " + screen.availWidth + "<br />";
outStr += "Available Screen Height= " + screen.availHeight + "<br />";
outStr += "Color Depth= " + screen.colorDepth + "<br />";
outStr += "Font Smoothing Enabled= " + screen.fontSmoothingEnabled + "<br />"
document.getElementById("scrninfo").innerHTML = outStr;
Note: The screen object is a property of the window object, but you don't need to
specify the window object when calling the screen object because the window object
is the default object.
An example use of the Screen object might be to use the window object's resizeTo method
to make the users browser window go full-screen when it displays your webpage.
