Hi,

I am wanting to put a hyperlinked image on my page that zooms in and out like Ctrl+ and Ctrl-. Internet Explorer is being used in my project. I have a great JS solution for this (Thanks MPlungian), but I have also seen references to a proprietary IE CSS property called Zoom. I have tried it, but without sucess.

Any ideas for some working code greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Sam

The CSS zoom property is yet to be released. It is part of CSS3 I believe, so Internet Explorer will not handle it...

You could try something like:
<P onmouseover="this.style.zoom='200%'"
   onmouseout="this.style.zoom='normal'">

I am not sure what you are trying for, so not sure how much that will help :-)

Thanks for the feedback. Basically I am trying to provide a "+" and a "-" graphic icon that users can click on to zoom in and zoom out of a web page that I have which contains a large image... Actually it is a large process diagram. I can do this well with CTRL+ and CTRL- and therefore want an emulation of this. The need is derived from concern that some users would not understand CTRL+ and CTRL-.

Thanks,

Sam

I would use a jquery plugin for the effect you wish.

This gives the user the option to zoom on the images. Here are some examples.
http://lab.gianiaz.com/jquery/gzoom/
http://css-tricks.com/anythingzoomer-jquery-plugin/
http://www.mind-projects.it/jqzoom_v10
http://motherrussia.polyester.se/jquery/panview/

Or try re-using my example like
<img onmouseover="this.style.zoom='200%'" src=yourimage.jpg" onmouseout="this.style.zoom='normal'"/>

CSS Zoom would probably not be the best option here. I would recommend the top jquery plugin, nice looking, obvious to use etc.

Thanks
