This component can work in four different modes depending on the selected tool:

  • With the tool pan the user can move the image and drag it around within the viewer, but can't interact with SVG child elements.
  • With the tool zoom the user can scale the image either with a point click or selecting a region to zoom the specified area, but can't interact with SVG child elements.
  • With the tool none the user can interact with SVG child elements and trigger events.
  • With the tool auto the user can interact with SVG child elements, perform pan (dragging the image), zoom in (double click), zoom out (double click + shift).
