Clients can be launched with Java Web Start in Windowed mode from the Gateway Webpage or the Designer. Windowed mode creates a Client that appears as a normal windows program.
Clients can be launched with Java Web Start in Full Screen mode from the Gateway Webpage or the Designer. Full Screen mode creates a Client that takes up the entire screen including the Windows Taskbar. Special keys like the Tab, Alt, Crtl, and Window/Option keys can be used in Full Screen mode. To prevent users from getting to their desktop, these keys can be blocked by enabling window settings and programs that are not part of Ignition. This is typically done when a keyboard is available, but often omitted when only using a Touchscreen monitor.
Clients can be launched on a mobile device using the Mobile Module. They are opened behind the scenes on the server and sent using the mobile device's web browser, not as a native App. A desktop environment (that is, X Window) is required for any headless server installation (common on Linux servers). A "headless" server installation means the computer Ignition is installed on has no desktop to interact with, ie: you have to use a command prompt to access that computer. Most installations will not use this method.
Note that this "localhost" address will only work on the computer Ignition is installed on. If you are accessing this webpage from a mobile device, you will automatically be redirected to the mobile launch page.
