Auto-zooming View in XML

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to create an automatic gauge to zoom the view out one notch (to 75%) whenever the zoom reset key is hit? I have been unable to creat such a gauge to date utilizing my vast XML knowledge and background. (well, maybe not so vast, but I can spell XML 2 out of 3 times! *grin?*)

Hi,Not tested, but you could try the A:Var "ZOOM_FACTOR" using the K events "ZOOM_MINUS" and "ZOOM_PLUS", "ZOOM_IN_FINE" and "ZOOM_OUT_FINE" or "ZOOM_IN" and "ZOOM_OUT"Say:Zoomfactor > (what you want) if{ Zoom out }Zoomfactor < (what you want) if{ Zoom in }or something like that.Hope it helps,Jan"Beatus Ille Procul Negotiis"

Hi Jan,I was puzzled by the same question.The problem is, that to my knowledge there's no (XML) variable that specifies the current zoom factor.Hence your solution doesn't work :-)Cheers, Rob

Rob,Possible, but i found in the TokenvarSDK:ZOOM_FACTOR N Specifies zoom value of current window in real units.So probably:(A:ZOOM_FACTOR,number)Didn't try though,Jan"Beatus Ille Procul Negotiis"

There is the zoom 1x variable to test for. However, I don't want to lock the zoom to my preference. I'd like to somehow be able to catch the zoom reset event and only then tack on a zoom out command.

I see now,What variable do you use?For curiousity i tried A:Zoom factor,number and percent.As Rob stated: it doesn't give any value.Jan"Beatus Ille Procul Negotiis"

A combination of ZOOM_FACTOR N and KEY_ZOOM_1X and KEY_ZOOM_OUT should get me to where I want to be zoom-wise. The sticky wicket is that I want to retain the ability to zoom in and out as wanted, but to trick FS9 into making a zoom of 75% the default for a zoom/view reset.
