Modifier in Compose Foundation



Shows a [Magnifier] widget that shows an enlarged version of the content at [sourceCenter] relative to the current layout node.

This function returns a no-op modifier on API levels below P (28), since the framework does not support the [Magnifier] widget on those levels. However, even on higher API levels, not all magnifier features are supported on all platforms. Please refer to parameter explanations below to learn more about supported features on different platform versions.

This function does not allow configuration of [source bounds][Magnifier.Builder.setSourceBounds] since the magnifier widget does not support constraining to the bounds of composables.

fun Modifier.magnifier(
    sourceCenter: Density.() -> Offset,
    magnifierCenter: (Density.() -> Offset)? = null,

    elevation: Dp = Dp.Unspecified,
    clip: Boolean = true


sourceCenterThe offset of the center of the magnified content. Measured in pixels from the top-left of the layout node this modifier is applied to. This offset is passed to [].
magnifierCenterThe offset of the magnifier widget itself, where the magnified content is rendered over the original content. Measured in density-independent pixels from the top-left of the layout node this modifier is applied to. If left null or returns an [unspecified][DpOffset.Unspecified] value, the magnifier widget will be placed at a default offset relative to [sourceCenter]. The value of that offset is specified by the system.
onSizeChangedAn optional callback that will be invoked when the magnifier widget is initialized to report on its actual size. This can be useful when [size] parameter is left unspecified.
zoomSee [Magnifier.setZoom]. Only supported on API 29+.
sizeSee [Magnifier.Builder.setSize]. Only supported on API 29+.
cornerRadiusSee [Magnifier.Builder.setCornerRadius]. Only supported on API 29+.
elevationSee [Magnifier.Builder.setElevation]. Only supported on API 29+.
clipSee [Magnifier.Builder.setClippingEnabled]. Only supported on API 29+.

Code Example
