shrink map to fit my canvas(viewport)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

i am trying to shrink my 100*100 celled isometric map to fit my desktop screen on click of a button (or through scroll event).

The only possible option I have managed to get is the canvas zoom-in/out feature in melonJS. It is not suiting my requirement as the border cells are not shown inside my viewport.

Could you suggest if there is any better way to do this?

My current code looks something like this :

// register on mouse event
        me.input.registerPointerEvent("wheel", me.game.viewport, function (event) {
        me.event.publish("wheel", [ event ]);
        this.mousewheel = me.event.subscribe("wheel", function (event) {

            var viewport = me.game.viewport;
            //viewport.inViewport = true;
            if ( event.deltaY >0 ){

another option is to apply the transformation on the world container, or any child container where your map is loaded, see similar discussion here

As a reminder, all visible objects are inheriting from the me.Renderable, which means they all have a currentTransform property you can use. Also will follow the parent/child tree.

The viewport inherits from the rectangle class, which has a scale method. Scaling the viewport only changes the virtualized size of the viewport. If you want to scale what is drawn, you have several options:

The first option is the best option, and the one discussed in the linked thread.
