Deep Zoom version of Silverlight 2 Developer Reference Poster

I took a reasonable resolution version of the Silverlight 2 Developer Reference Poster and crossed that with the Deep Zoom Composer, added a JS mouse wheel library and in about 5 minutes had a Deep Zoom version of the poster running in Silverlight.  The sample is posted here.

The XAML is simple – just point the MultiScaleImage element to the output of the Deep Zoom Composer.

  <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">

    <MultiScaleImage x:Name="img" Source="poster/info.bin"/>


The JavaScript is a bit more complex and you can find that here.

    Joe – really cool example. You may also want to look into a version we created that does not use JavaScript:

    By using Pete Blois’s HTMLBridge code, you can get mousewheel working on IE/FF on Windows and FF/Safari on Mac without having to write any JS 🙂

    It’s very cool, it’ll be even cooler if it changes the cursos when moving or when scaling.

  17. Is this deep zoom poster working for anyone?  I’ve tried it on Windows with IE8 and Silverlight 3.0 beta, OS X with Safari 4.0 beta and Silverlight 3.0 beta and OS X with Firefox 3 and Silverlight 3.0 beta.  All three give me a plain white page.
