Magnify feature?

Post by vitasimplex »

I was wondering if there would ever be a function that would allow for the magnification of an image file on mouseover similar to objectdock or rocketdock? I've already done away with CD Art Display, I was hoping I might be able to do away with objectdock as well if I had some of the same functionality.

Thanks to dynamic variables, this is already possible in the newest beta. All you need to do is have set a MouseOverAction which will toggle some measure which controls the size of the image. Then, you either use a transformation matrix or fiddle with the W and H directly to achieve your effect.

Are there any skins that that actually use the transformation matrix, I haven't seen any skins use the transformation matrix yet.
