Zoom in on Silverlight


Jeff Proise has put up a nice little Silverlight page turning demo using an old Microsoft Systems Journal issue as the subject matter. The challenge for me is reading it. I do get my eyes tested regularly but they are not that good. It would definitely benefit from the addition of his Silverlight mousewheel zoom code.

But no matter, IE7 has a page zooming feature built in, right?:

Well, the funny thing is it seems to have no effect on Silverlight canvas:

It zoomed in the IE window but the Silverlight object stayed the same size.

I’m probably missing something due to my lack of Silverlight experience but it strikes me as an interesting niggle that Silverlight developers will need to watch out for….
