How to make your widget to stretch to full screen

Initially body-element has some predefined margin and padding values. To make your widget to cover full screen you will need to reset those by setting margin:0 and padding:0 in CSS. If you don’t override default values and set body width:100% you will experience some horizontal movement.

body{
width:100%;
height: 100%;
background-color:#f3f3d1;
 
/*set this to get rid of the small horizontal movement*/
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

The next step is to make a wrapper div that contains all your content. You will have to use absolute positioning and place the div to start from the left upper corner by setting left:0; and top:0; in css:

/*absolute positioning is needed to cover full screen*/
#fsWrapper{
width: 100%;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
left: 0;
top: 0;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

Example Widget

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css">
<style>
body{
width:100%;
height: 100%;
background-color:#f3f3d1;
 
/*set this to get rid of the small horizontal movement*/
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
 
/*absolute positioning is needed to cover full screen*/
#fsWrapper{
width: 100%;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
left: 0;
top: 0;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="fsWrapper">
<!-- your widget content -->
</div>
</body>
</html>
