[mapguide-users] AJAX viewer zoom slider

You can workaround this for now by setting the 'scales' array to a new
value after the map is initialized. For example this will change the
slider to zoom between scales 1:2000 and roughly 1:300000

    scales = new Array();
    scale = 2000;
    for(var i=0; i < 20; i++) {
        scales[i] = scale;
        scale *= 1.3;

    mapFrame.scales = scales;

You're free to define the number of scales in the array to make the
slider smoother and to define the increment between scales.

Is it just me, or does having a zoom slider where the top 1/3 is
dedicated to scales greater than 1:1 not make any sense?  This appears
to be the case in the maps that I have made that don't have base layers.
The slider function itself appears to use a pretty good algorithm to
zoom progressively, but I think that it might be more useful if:
 - It was integer-based, and/or
 - It was possible to specify min/max scales for a given map
I put in a defect report for this a while back:
In the meantime, can anyone suggest a workaround?
