Hi there...

Private Declare Function SetParent Lib "user32" (ByVal hWndChild As Long, ByVal hWndNewParent As Long) As Long
Dim oldwnd As Long

oldwnd = SetParent(Me.hWnd, Form2.Picture1.hWnd)

I have used the code above to display the form1 into the pictureBox object located in form2.

My question is; Is it possible to make zoom in / zoom out operations for that picture object?

Thanks...

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Dim oldwnd As Long

oldwnd = SetParent(Me.hWnd, Form2.Picture1.hWnd)
Me.Move 1, 1
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Form2.Show
End Sub

Private Sub Command3_Click()
     StretchBlt Form2.Picture1.hdc, 1, 1, Form1.Width * 2, Form1.Height * 2, Form2.Picture1.hdc, 1, 1, Form1.Width, Form1.Height, &HCC0020
End Sub

Try this:
To zoom:
picture1.PaintPicture picture1.Image, 0, 0, picture1.Width * 0.8, picture1.Height * 0.8


0.8 is the constant of scale

1 means 100% (no zoom)
0.5 means 50%
2 means 200%
