Embedded browser zooming

I'm developing with JDE 4.7 and have made an application that follows the BrowserContentManagerDemo very closely. It is working fine except that it is hard to navigate through websites since the browser field is zoomed in to just one part of the page and there is no way to zoom out to get the bigger picture.


Is there any way to implement the zooming in/out that the default browser has?


Thanks in advance.

Re: Embedded browser zooming

This is not currently supported in a browser field.  The browser field uses a different rendering engine than the BlackBerry Browser, which does not support the same zoom features found in the browser.
