Is it possible to get it to work on Android ?
There’s an open-source library called android-pinch that you can include in your project to enable pinch zoom if you switch your
WebView to a
WebImageView. Here’s an example of usage…
// create the WebImageView object from xml WebImageView img = (WebImageView) findViewById(R.id.main_pic); // fetches the image in a background thread img.setImageFromURL("http://www.mysite.com/mypicture.jpg"); // enable pinch-zoom abilities on the image new PinchImageView(img);
When you would like to scale web content in you WebView and enable pinch and zoom, I prefer the simple android way.
and you can even hide the controls if you are using API 11 or higher
It’s not exactly in a webview, but in any layout, that I wrote a piece of code for detecting pinch in an Android view.
It took me days to find out a solution for this, so I made my own custom pinch gesture detector.
You can see it in Github: http://github.com/luisfer/Neckar
Hope it helps.
This excellent tutorial shows how to implement the Pinch gesture.
