Here's hoping you are still waiting for an answer 5 years later.
IF you want to view a container field full window then create a form layout with the container anchors set to expand. Thus the dimensions of the container can be on a layout of say 200 x 200 pixels and useable in all windows. Put a navigation header to close the window, etc.
Put a button on the original layout to switch to the above layout to view the container field. Then return to the original layout.
