Resizable ScrollableThumbnail? [message #178438] Wed, 20 April 2005 15:25 Go to next message

Hello,

I have seen in other graphical application where the overview windows
thumbnail can be resized, which effectively zooms the "main" window. Is
this capability available either in the framework or an example? If not, is
there a plan to implement this?

Thank you,
Brett

Where have you seen this?

We have an overview as well as support for zooming. But resizing the
overview has no effect on zoom.

Our company, Embarcadero (http://www.embarcadero.com/), has a suite of tools
that were written with the Tom Sawyer product, and we would like to retain
this zoom capability going forward into eclipse/gef base products.

Also, these other tools allow you to "select" an arbitrary area in the
overview window that then zooms & scrolls the main window to "fit" the
selected area.

The code we already have working is similar to the overview window from the
logic example. The capability that we would like to obtain/implement is the
ability to zoom the main window by resizing the thumbnail (light blue
rectangle) inside the overview.

While we don't do this, this is certainly possible. Shouldn't be too
difficult to implement.

Well, it seems we would want do derive from ScrollableThumbnail, but this is
a final class. Any suggestions on how to implement this? So I take it that
there is no plan to implement this into the gef framework?

Actually, you probably want Thumbnail. You can add a mouse listener and
detect drags and determine the scroll location and zoom amount.

If you think you still need to subclass ScrollableThumbnail, open a bug
report stating why you need to subclass it.
