Down at the bottom right of IE8 is a little zoom level pulldown. I can change the percentage of zoom from 50% to 400%.

If I have an applet running and the zoom level is changed. The parent window for the applet is resized causing the applet to be either clipped or placed in the upper left corner of a much larger parent window.

Try this applet and use the zoom level control:

What event is sent to the applet when the zoom level control is activated? I haven't found one.

This is a serious bug somewhere. I hope it's in my code so I can fix it.
