I am writing an application, and when designing the interface in Glade, at a previous point, I set the default size and "size request" to 800x600. I figured it would be better to run the application full-screen (as it is going to be deployed on a small, embedded system with a 7" monitor).

Note, I could not get the application to go to 800x600 by setting the "default size" alone, I also had to set the "size request".

So, I took away the "default size" and "size request" and called the fullscreen() function on my top-level, gtk.Window object. For whatever reason though, the window does not go full-screen. I am calling the function right after I assign the widget to a varable. Any ideas?

toplevel = gladeFile.get_widget("toplevel")


In Glade, on the top-level gtk.Window widget, I had to set "Resizable" to "Yes".
