Hey, that's slick. Nicely explained, too.

How complex would it be to create a "bubble" effect so that rather than the magnified image being a flat disk, it looks raised?

Glen,

I have thought about doing that recently :-)

The trick could be accomplished a couple ways.  Due to the internal caching of the image, I have no problem introducing another layer of the image with a skew effect that would render the bubble effect.

I will post a blog on that when I get that working.

Hi Michael:  Thanks for a great video.

Would you have an example of how to instead have the js events in the xaml's code behind using C# instead of using javascript?
