Property Value

true if the host is permitted to invoke zoom behavior on load that can increase the DPI; otherwise, false. The default value is true.


This property is only relevant if the platform supports auto-zooming to DPI. For example, Internet Explorer 8 running on Windows 7 supports auto-zooming.

This property can only be set during Silverlight plug-in initialization, and is read-only at run time for all possible access models.

Regardless of auto-zoom behavior, a user can still initiate zoom, which you can detect and process by handling the Zoomed event. See OnZoom (Silverlight Plug-in Object).
