I'd like the user to be able to zoom the contents of a Browser. Is this possible? How?

Thanks,

Hi,

There is not cross-Browser API for doing this. However there are a couple
of possibilities you can explore:

1. When I google "javascript zoom" it gives links to several JS scripts that
claim to do zooming. I haven't tried any of them, but if you find one that
works for you then you can probably use it from the java side with
Browser.execute() or Browser.evaluate() calls.

2. Alternatively, if you want to ship a XULRunner with your app then you can
create your Browser instance with syle SWT.MOZILLA and do the zooming via
JavaXPCOM. There is an example of this in
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=160620 . For more info on
using JavaXPCOM see http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#howusejavaxpcom .

HTH,
Grant
