OpenZoom: Open Source Zoomable UIs

Monday, June 8, 2009 12:37

OpenZoom is an open source framework for creating zoomable user interfaces.

The framework is similar to Silverlight?s Deep Zoom control (see WRD post), but for Flash.

OpenZoom - Zooming With Flash

The power behind OpenZoom is Flex MultiScaleImage component, which is built on top of the OpenZoom framework.

The name is same wih the Silverlight Deep Zoom?s built-in control & the usage is similar too.

The component has built-in support for keyboard / mouse activities & supports Deep Zoom, Zoomify & OpenZoom images.

For now, OpenZoom can sound to specific, but considering its abilities & usage areas, we?ll probably be hearing more about it soon.

P.S. The framework is so fresh & still in development but it can be downloaded (& it is documented).
