MyZoomIn (MFC ZoomIn w/Additional Features)

Environment: VC6

This simple application is an MFC implementation of the Zoomin application provided by Microsoft. It incorporates the features of the Zoomin extension posted to CodeGuru by Thierry Maurel along with a few features that I've added.

The Zoomin extension by Thierry Maurel added grids and always-on-top features to Zoomin. These features have been incorporated into MyZoomIn along with the following features:

- Tooltips on the scroll bar to indicate zoom factor
- Status bar attached (with an option to hide)
- XY coordinates of pixel at mouse cursor (absolute or relative)
- RGB identification of pixel at mouse cursor

The source code is all available in the download, so I didn't put any of it in this article. For my other projects (software and electronics) and the latest updates, you can visit my website.

With customer-facing applications on the rise, traditional programming platforms simply can't keep up with the "short schedules and rapid change cycles" required to develop these applications.

  • Live Event Date: September 10, 2014 @ 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT Modern mobile applications connect systems-of-engagement (mobile apps) with systems-of-record (traditional IT) to deliver new and innovative business value. But the lifecycle for development of mobile apps is also new and different. Emerging trends in mobile development call for faster delivery of incremental features, coupled with feedback from the users of the app "in the wild". This loop of continuous delivery and continuous feedback is …
