Please take a look at this jquery code that should produce a nice scrolling magnifier effect.  I updated the image and code links, but I must be missing something.  You can see the working original at: http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/demos/functional/#ui.magnifier

Thanks!

John

This is a common problem with their libaries .... just try those set of libaries:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.core.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.magnifier.js"></script>

Thanks.  I downloaded the first one last week, but I have no idea how to use. To make matters more complicated, that one is written with no line breaks which makes it virtually impossible for a beginner like me to read..  Is there an easy way to convert that to a readable form with all the proper line breaks?

With regard to the magnifier one, what would the html look like?  Just like the one in their example above?

Thanks,

John

If you copy paste
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.core.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.magnifier.js"></script>
over your
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.5.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.magnifier.js"></script>
the magnifier demo should work.

It's not so much a common problem with the library, but that there are a few bugs in JQuery UI's stable version that are fixed in the beta version, which is referenced in the src above.

Readable versions of involved Javascript.
http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.js
http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.core.js
http://ui.jquery.com/repository/latest/ui/ui.magnifier.js
However, reading them probably won't do you much good.  You are better off reading the JQuery tutorials.

I didn't mean bugs and fixed.  I meant changes and updated.  Some of the UI is still being in the process of being actively implemented.
