WebRiva, scaling? - IVB - 01-11-2018

I thought WebRiva would scale images? I just pulled up the iPhone sized images on my Android (bigger screen size), it shows up at the natively sized image. 

In our house we have
iPhone 6S: 1334x750
iPhone 7: 1920 x 1080
Pixel 2 XL: 2560 x 1440

I created screens for the 6S, was that the wrong move?

It doesn't do any scaling itself. The phone does the scaling if any is done. If you don't suppress it they often do a 2:1 scaling, but that wouldn't be optimal for the middle one.

You can use the template scaling stuff to scale for the middle one. You should be able to get the phone to do 2x for the larger one, which is pretty much twice as large.

Anyone with an android phone able to have Chrome do any scaling? I can't figure it out. I even went into Accessibility, and checked the "override website request to prevent zoom in". Pinch to expand doesn't work, can't see what else to do.

WebRIVA won't try to prevent zoom unless you set the 'no scale' option on the URL. So that wouldn't be it. It may just assume that the user will do any scaling on the fly and you can't set a specific zoom on startup, I'm not sure. It's a bit of a black art to me, and probably not remotely standardized across browsers/platforms.

If you search for "chrome preset zoom" there are various pages that discuss this topic.

I can zoom on my laptop, but not the phone. Will keep googling.
