When creating applets: Make it possible to easy choose a maximum window-size that fits all laptops so that the creator doesn't end up creating an applet that require a bigger screen size to function properly than the students have on their laptops.


I often want to create an applet that uses as much space as possible in order to be sure to get all what I want shown on the same time. But afterwards it's size often turns out to be to big to function properly on all the students laptops, and I have to use a lot of time fitting it; change the length of text-elements and replacing objects.

So it would be very nice if you could make it possible to chose a maximum screen size from the start that fits all laptops so that it isn't necessary to refit the applet afterwards.


You could also make a similar option for pads and mobile phones.

1) You can see the size in the title bar in Classic 5


2) Try the full-screen button eg https://www.geogebra.org/m/RHYH3UQ8

Yes, it's possible to see the size in the title bar.

But if I want to create an applet that is possible to be used properly on all laptops then which window-size shall I create it with ?

I haven't been able to find an answer to that question.

And it would be much easier if it was possible to just click on an icon to get a window-size that fits all laptops, pads or mobile phones - I mean an icon for each type of device.

I have also tried to use the full-screen button, but it only seems to work when the window-size of the created applet is smaller than the used display.

So the full-screen button doesn't solve the problem when the window-size of the created applet is larger than the used display.

Please post an example

800 x 500 is a quite small window and display on a laptop. I would guess it's about a pad-size.

All my students use a laptop with a bigger display than that.

But I don't know the exact dimensions of the smallest display they got.
