    I'm not quite sure what you are asking here, can you elaborate ?

    Also having selectable zooms from 2 to 10 might be cool (not sure how deep you are able to go).
    I can do that.


    Also be aware that the app is sizable, so an interim solution would be to make it bigger.

    It starts up fine, it just seems to be jerkier movement than the built-in one. I'm guessing that you blit the whole frame every time, and the built in one maybe moves the image, and just blits the new bit that's been moved into zoom area...if you see what i mean.

    I'm running an 1800MHz Dell, at work.

    I think the suggestion about "looks like a big magnifier" means instead of having a stationary window that zooms what's under your mouse, he wants a large magnifying glass to move with the mouse, and zoom in that. Kinda like an app you used to be able to get for the Atari ST!

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

    Strange, it's blinding fast on a 1200mhz athlon here.

    Have you compared it side-by-side with the XP version?

    Hmm, wonder if it's an Athlon -v- Intel thang? I'll try it on my Athlon at home tonight.

    It might be sampling TOO fast for some computers/vid cards. I will make this adjustable.

    It could possibly be the hotkey code, I didn't subclass, I used waitmessage and peakmessage to check for keypress. I will subclass instead and see what happens.
    It has way too much cpu usage it seems.

    I think I fixed it, I'll upload an updated version later today.
    Cpu usage cut from 30% to 0% to 6%
