Help with zoom in java
Hi, Website page cluttered with many blocks containing different webpages/stuff: weather/maps/random stuff
I want to take this page and miniaturize everything but still keep it active so I can see whats going on. Then when I need to view something, I could click the block I want and it zooms in on it to full screen.
I've been trying to figure out how to do this, but I'm lost.
Basically I'm trying to make a dashboard. This dashboard would contain weather maps, html pages of site statuses.
I want to take these pages and miniaturize them into little active blocks on one page.
I hope I explained myself well enough.
I have not seen this done in Java before, that doesn't mean that it hasn't, or that it cant be done! But i have seen this done many times in Flash, there is also a lot of support available, here is a website which gives a tutorial on magnification:
Mimicking a Magnifying Glass in Flash
This is one tutorial, there are many out there for this sort of thing.
Asking same like Google Maps
try looking at the dojo toolkit
or use an applet and a graphics api
