ZoomLevelChanging problem

Thread ID:

Asked On August 1, 2019 07:35 PM UTC


I have a SfMap with an OSM ImageryLayer with the MinZoom property set to 6, i don't want the user to zoom out further. 
If you keep zooming out while at this ZoomLevel (6), the ZoomLevelChangingEventArgs.CurrentLevel of the ZoomLevelChanging event keep going down even tho the MinZoom is 6.

This cause a problem when the user then try to zoom in, it cause a flashing visual glitch where the map is not really zooming in until the  ZoomLevelChangingEventArgs.CurrentLevel reach 6 or higher. 

Can you fix the CurrentLevel property of ZoomLevelChangingEventArgs so it doesn't go lower than the MinZoom property?

Hi Nicholas, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We would like to inform you that the MinZoom and MaxZoom properties are supported only for ShapeFileLayer. We can achieve the requirement by cancelling the zooming based on CurrentLevel argument value in ZoomLevelChanging Event in ImageryLayer as per the below snippet 
<Grid x:Name="MainGrid" BackgroundColor="White"> 
    <maps:SfMaps x:Name="Maps"  
            <maps:ImageryLayer x:Name="MapsLayer"  
private void MapsLayer_ZoomLevelChanging(object sender, ZoomLevelChangingEventArgs e) 
    if (e.CurrentLevel < 6) 
        e.Cancel = true; 
Please find the sample from the below link. 
Note: We are facing issue when the cancelling the zoom the CurrentLevel event argument value is not updated properly. So, we will fix this issue and move the fix in our next weekly Nuget which is scheduled to be released on 13th August 2019. 
Please let us know if you have any other queries.

I have just tried this solution, using SfMaps version, and it is not working. Is there still a problem with the e.Cancel not updating the CurrentLevel?

Hi James, 

We have prepared a simple SfMaps sample with the solution that we have provided in our earlier and checked the reported problem. But we afraid that, we are not able to reproduce the reported problem in our side. Can you please check with the sample and video in the following location? 

So, we suspect that the NuGet cache wat not properly cleared, this may be the reason for the reported problem. Please check by clearing the NuGet cache by using the instruction given in the following link.   

If still you face the problem, please provide the issue reproducing sample. This would be helpful for us to give better solution in this.
