The Mask Image Viewer component gives the ability to view and interact with a set of masked images. It uses a dynamic shape mask to expose underlying images through the main base image. Users can pan the mask using the drag gesture, change the size of the mask using the zoom gesture or rotate the mask using the rotate gesture. If more than one masked image is added, successive images in the “stack” can be selected using the DOUBLE TAP gesture on the mask.
Each component window can be manipulated using the DRAG, SCALE and ROTATE multitouch gestures independently of the panoramic image content. All multitouch gestures can be configured through the GML file.
The mask image viewing window frame, menu and buttons can be added or removed dynamically using the CML file. The CML document also allows for the inclusion of a dynamic info panel which can contain metadata related to the panoramic image. In addition every object displayed in the component window can be formatted and styled using the CSS file.
For a description of this CML tag refer to the CML Wiki reference:
