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.

    I don't especially want to create a 'new article' for this, perhaps Corey might consider incorporating my code as an 'update' to his article? To be brief, I supplemented the 'grid' code with a 'View Rulers' option, making measurement a little easier. Let me know if you're interested. D.
