Zooming with the mouse wheel does not work

Jun 8, 2009 at 6:58 PM

When I scroll the wheel, I see that VEMap.OnMouseWheel() is called and eventually PublicEventsGlobeControl.DoMouseWheel() is called. But the map never zooms in. Do I need to 'turn on' this functionality somehow?

No, it should be on.  It those functions are being called then it is working.  Check the parameters to see if it indicates scrolling is occuring or not.

I did notice that sometimes when I scroll using a laptop touchpad it won't work but with a mouse it does.  I don't know why, it is a Windows thing because the same thing happens in other apps sometimes.

What parms should I check? I assume you mean the MouseEventArgs which has some properties like X,Y,Delta,Location.

I just downloaded the latest source code - 23079 and ran the WPFVEMapSample but it still does not zoom with the mouse wheel. I am running this on a workstation with a Logitech scroll mouse. The scroll works to zoom the Bing web maps and I see the events coming into the WPF sample, but it doesn't zoom.

Yes, check the properties of the MouseEventArgs to see if they change.  The delta property tells you how much scrolling occurs.  If the data is being passed onto the GlobeControl, then I don't know why it may not scroll for you.  Does it work on other computers? Did it ever work on your computer?

Yes, the MouseEventArgs.Delta property does change, it changes between 120 to -120 depending on how fast I scroll the wheel. If I scroll the wheel fast, the Delta property will be around 600.

I tried this on another computer and got the same behavior. I uninstalled Bing maps on this computer and reinstalled it. My Microsoft.MapPoint.* assemblies are version

That is odd.  Again, it the values are being sent to the GlobeControl, it should work.  I have no ideas for you right now but will take another look when I have time.
