Can someone give me some hints on how I could remake the
"zoom"-effect in a Flex-application? I'm not asking for the whole
solution but for some pointers on what classes and such I should be
using (bitmap, mask, cursor...).
Would appreciate some answers since I really want to do this
in Flex/ActionScript rather than Silverlight.
You would need to track the MouseEvent.MOUSE_MOVE with an
event listener on your 'shoe image'. You would use that to set the
X/Y of your 'tooltip' component that had a much larger image so
taht it followed your mouse, and translated the x/y into the other
coordinates to move the image around underneath the viewport (like
bigX = x * 1.2, bigY = y* 1.2 though you can easily calculate the
scale value from the image sizes). The viewport would be a
MaskFilter I believe. Yu would set mouseEnabled = false for the
tooltip so that it didn't accept input from the mouse, instead
passing through to the image underneath. I also believe that
example use the Move transition with an easingFunction so that it
lags behind slightly.
