WebWorks Javascript extension - zoom in/out on page


Currently Im starting developing webworks application for OS 5 device, Is it possible to control the zoom in/out screen layout using webworks extension ? I have look through the meta tag viewpoint, but it doesnt do what I want...(e.g prevent zoom in on button, text field..., not able to zoom out after zoom in)

As per my opinion it can't be possible.
But lets watch if any one having the code regarding to this matter or having any idea to solve this.

I don't believe this is possible on OS 5 devices.  The web engine does not provide an API to allow the Java layer to control its zoom level.  As you indicated, 5.0 does support the viewport meta tag.  However this tag only determines a page's initial view level unless you are using the user-scalable=no property, which I'm not sure fully works in 5.0 (it does in BB6+).
