The word WITH in stylize/layout works like MAKE object!. It allows you
to add extra fields to your face objects. So in your WITH block for your
style you could put a line like:
This will create a new field in your ZOOM style with that name, which will
enable you to have nice reference to the dependent magnified face. Or
perhaps to the window - the principle is the same.
In the same way you could add your refresh-zoom-window function (after
modification for references) to the style itself. Also, instead of passing
and size, pass a reference to the main (image) face.
This sort of thing should enable refresh-zoom-window to be localised as
Now how you set up the link... Various means I guess.
You could pass it as a specific keyword that your style defines.
For an example have a look at "Custom Style Example" in
http://www.codeconscious.com/rebsite/vid-notes.r In this
example I've defined a word "bars" specific to that style.
Another way (and this is speculation because I
have not tried it) could be that your style automatically
creates and destroys the magnification window.
Perhaps you could do this in the redraw function
of the feel. Make a redraw function
that creates the window if it is not already created on an
action of 'show and destroys the window on an action
of 'hide. Then your link is automatic :^).

Perhaps TO-IMAGE face will do the trick.

I'm not entirely sure want you after here.
