IE 11 HTML image map not rendered after user zooming RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Do you know how to fix this bug on my internal web site (with html/css/js fix or deploying KB maybe) ?

    The map used by an image is not used anymore after the user zoom in or out inside his IE.

    If the page is initialy loaded at 110%, the map area is used but not after the user change his zoom level...

    Any idea will be great.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <head><title>ie11 map title</title></head>
    <img src="" usemap="#planetmap" alt="">
    <map name="planetmap">
    <area shape="poly" coords="2,5,32,1,33,22,51,36,33,57" title="The Americas"><area shape="poly" coords="57,14,70,2,111,3,114,23,97,34" title="Eurasia"><area shape="poly" coords="57,14,86,29,73,52,66,49,50,28" title="Africa"><area shape="poly" coords="105,40,108,49,122,52,127,41,117,34" title="Australia">

  • Hi,

    Post questions about html, css and scripting for website development to stackoverflow (see this IE Web development forum post....

    Please first validate and correct your markup errors at and always test from a local or domain or public web server.... You are missing a required attribute and you are referencing a third-party resource.... accessing internet resources from a web page from your local file system (using the file system) may be bridled by IE's security zone settings. File>Properties menu from IE to determine which IE security zone your site (web page file) maps to.

    On the IE Dev tools, Networking tab, click the Start button to record network request and responses... there is also a button there to 'always refresh from the server'

    The first step in trouble shooting web browser issues is to test in NoAddons mode(Start>Run>iexplore.exe -extoff [url]

    If possible ALWAYS include a link to your website or a mashup on either or the mashup input fields that available on the stack overflow IE sites.

    It is unsure from you question if you mean adaptive zoom or pinch zoom.... if you mean pinch zoom and are using a touchpad (as opposed to screen pinch zoom) turn off your touchpad from the mouse control Panel and attach a wireless or wired mouse.... (touchpads can be fiddly with their mouse multi-touch settings).... you can view your current adaptive and pinch zoom scaling factor from the View menu it IE.... possibly your touchpad has scaled the image/page to a very small size without you touching the screen or touchpad or keyboard shortcuts.

    A better medium for mapping is SVG ... you can find some excellent open source world maps at wikipedia.

    thank you for your understanding.

  • Hi SamFa,

    As Rob said, for IE development issue, we’d suggest you to confirm that in MSDN forum first for good measure.

    The reason why we suggest posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.

    Best Regards,
