  • Hello, I need to implement Pinch and Zoom functionality in my UWP. 

    Can some one point me an example for this? Also, currently I am having Windows 10 Laptop. Is it possible to view this feature in Windows 10 laptop? or this is only available for Tablets and phones?

  • Please see Welcome to the Developing Universal Windows apps forum!Alert meand the Guide to posting: subject line tagsAlert me.

    How to implement pinch and zoom depends on what exactly you are trying to achieve. Two typical ways are to embed the target in a ScrollViewer or to use Manipulation events directly.

    See Custom user interactions for more info on user input.

    These are universal features available on any device family.
