This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I want to add functionality such that a user can zoom in and out of the applets (it displays mind maps currently) as desired. Is there a way to do this by adding an attribute or child tag to the <applet> tag?
You will need to implement this functionality yourself, meaning the drawing code needs to take the current zoom factor into account. There's nothing in the browser or the Java Plugin to help with this.
