Is there anything in the works for a zoomify control? Something like this: http://www.dart.com/pwzm_overview.aspx. Basically a control that allows the user to zoom into an image.

Hello bemara57,

We have a similar example using our RadSlider for ASP.NET AJAX control.

Thanks, that it pretty close. I was hoping for more of the bells and whistles of specializing towards image zooming. From that site it says:

"By default, Zoom displays a reduced version of the source image. When a user zooms into an image detail, the server delivers only the portion that will be visible at that location."

Also things like a magnifying glass to preview zooms on the mouseover are other specialized features of image zoom. But really I think the most important is performance.. getting around loading high resolution images when not needed is key. Grabbing resolution as needed would be the way to go. I'll use your demo as a starting base and see what I can come up with. If it's anything cool I'll contribute it here. Thanks.
