Hi Robin,

The mode in VMMF could be added, are we going to change P&C as well?
The "all" value from P&C is a catch-all value.

Subject: View modes: more precision on fullscreen


it seems to me that there's a missing distinction in our list of view
modes: the difference between maximised and fullscreen (or perhaps
fullscreen and all-screen).

Maximised is the case in which the application takes up the entire
available screen space minus a little bit of chrome either for itself
(a window bar with a title and perhaps some buttons) or for the system
(task bar, menu clock, etc.); whereas fullscreen is when the viewport
is the same size as the screen (e.g. for video playback).

Both desktops and phones tend to have this distinction in one way or
another, so it sounds to me as something that we should expose as well.
