Zoomin Extension

Download source code - 21 KB

If you have ever used the Zoomin sample provided by Microsoft, you are aware of how difficult it is to count the pixels. To this end I developed a simple extension that adds a grid and the possibility to set the application on top-most position.

    the pixel you are clicking on.

    I would love to see that in Zoomin. I would also love to see
    xmag support Zoomins dynamic monitoring...but i guess
    thats for another day.

    Anyway I like your idea of the grid. How about a ToolTip along side the
    cursor giving current grid location ref. top left corner ?
