XDK zoom?

XDK zoom?

Bruce Kwan's picture

I have been playing around with the new XDK, however, I noticed that when the builds are completed for testing, there is no option for users to zoom in on/enlarge the content displayed on the mobile device. Does anyone know how to enable the zoom feature in the XDK?

Sizing down to fit the various screens is working fine with Viewport. What we want to do is enlarge/zoom in, but can't because the pinch to zoom in/out is not working. I found a posting that is almost 2 years old (posted July 2011) on the appMobi Forums. It indicates that when you choose viewport in a mobile web view, you can not use the pinch controls to zoom in/out. I'll need to dig a bit further, but hopefully, there is a fix/solution around this. The appMobil Viewport seems to work fine with iOS. I wonder if the pinch controls to zoom in/out is a limitation of the Android OS? Here is a link to the Forum posting http://bit.ly/11u19Ap

Hi nkhli m,

Thanks for the posting the link. I already saw the post on the appmobi forums. The suggestion was to implement a hack around the XDK, which was not recommended (which I also agree with). I'm going to continue to dig around to see if there is a way to implement the pinch to zoom in/out with the XDK for the Android OS platform. As I mentioned in my earlier post, pinch to zoom in/out is working with iOS through the XDK.

I made a quick hack that pops the emulator window out and 1:1 scale - only works with the non-tablet devices (not sure why yet).
