Zooming inside the view port

Hi everyone,


I am working on  a project where I need to place 3 viewports containing Side, Front and Plan sections. And each of these viewport would contain only the specific part of model so as to have better understanding.

I am able to place the viewport with desired views but its coming as a whole. How to "zoom inside the viewport" to highlight selected part.


Thanks in advance.

UIView class has zooming related methods. I can access the UIView from a PreviewControl pretty easily. In your case, you'll have to see how to get the UIView object from within a viewport.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for the help.

Hi Neerav, thanks for replying.

I received this link from Jeremy "". 


Here I took the ActiveView as my ViewPort view. But it opened that particular section view and zoomed it by 0.5.


So still no clue. I tried zooming inside the view port manually (by double clicking the viewport), but that didn't happen. What does that say, this functionality is not there ?
