Axure Tutorial: Image Full-Screen and Expanding


At present, more and more websites or apps will add a large number of images. Some of these images can be viewed in full screen, and some can be expanded by moving the mouse. Let's use Axure to make the effects.

Features to be Realized

Image Full-Screen and Enlarging

1. Click the image under the full screen title to expand the image size to full screen.

2. When the mouse moves into the image under the title of expand, expand image size. When the mouse moves out, restore the image size.

How to Realize these Features

1. Two image lists are made through two repeaters, one is Full-Screen list and the other is Expand list. Create a large image with a dynamic panel. When you click the image in the first image list, the image control of the large image will be changed into the image saved by the repeater, and the size will be expanded to the full screen.

2. When the mouse enters the image in the second image list, the image size expands proportionally. When the mouse is moved out, the image size is scaled down proportionally.
