Lightbox With IFrames

08.09.2006

  • submit to reddit
        A hacked version of lightbox that uses an IFrame when the url points to anything other than a jpeg. Also, added some syntax that allows a link to specify the height of the lightbox like this:

<a href="http://google.com" rel="lightbox|300">LB with height 300</a>

Well, guess I found it. Line 471-476 needs to include the "ths.updateNav() function for the links to appear. Love this script. Thanks Brando // if image is part of set display 'Image x of x' if(imageArray.length > 1){ Element.show('numberDisplay'); Element.setInnerHTML( 'numberDisplay', "Image " + eval(activeImage + 1) + " of " + imageArray.length); this.updateNav(); // THIS IS WHAT I ADDED }

Thank you Tim. This was exactly what I needed. The original script doesn't include the use of iframes at all which makes looking at a website in the lightbox impossible. This script worked perfectly. However, one small issue. When I use the grouping feature * rel=lightbox[group] * the navigation buttons disappear, but it does say at in the photo comments that it is "Image 5 of 7". How do I get these back. Thanks so much. Brando

Snippets Manager replied on Sat, 2008/10/18 - 8:27pm

How to copy the script? (Sorry really dumb question but I can't seem to copy without selecting the line numbers...)

Snippets Manager replied on Tue, 2008/06/10 - 8:57am

I am able to get this to work, thank you Tim! However, and this may seem dumb, but I can't get the lbox to close. I changed the paths in the lightbox.js to go to the correct location (../images/image.gif) but they still do not show up and I can't seem to make the lbox shut off. Suggestions?

Snippets Manager replied on Mon, 2007/07/02 - 4:17pm

This mod works pretty darn good until I received a pretty sick error in IE6. When "Discussions" are turned on in IE6 and you close the lightbox, it causes the entire iexplorer.exe process to shutdown or gives you the "exception unknown software exception (0xc00000fd)". Reproduced on several different systems with the "Discussions" turned on in IE6.

Snippets Manager replied on Mon, 2012/05/07 - 1:26pm

OK, then get to it. Let me know when it's done.

Snippets Manager replied on Mon, 2012/05/07 - 1:26pm

Besides that, this code is quite big for the desired purpose, I can do it with some few lines :)

Snippets Manager replied on Mon, 2012/05/07 - 1:26pm

It doesn't matter if it's right or wrong, by prototyping the array you damage the language, if it's supposed to happen something and then you change the default behaviour, you're damaging it, it's simple, 0 or 1, there's no 0.5

Snippets Manager replied on Mon, 2012/05/07 - 1:26pm

Right now, there is no way to change the width via the link. You can set the width globally in the js file, near the top. I had a specific need for height adjustment in an app I'm building -- that's why it's in there.

This works almost perfectly! Great Job Tim! How can I change the width too, in the link code, or is that only in the .js code? The link has "rel=lightbox | 700" but that only changes the height, how do I change the width too? Thanks, Eric

I wouldn't consider that damage. Being able to access the properties on an object is a very useful feature. Besides, if you want to access the elements of the array, and not also the properties on the array object, then you would do this instead: Array.prototype.a = 0; ary = [1, 2, 3] for(var i=0; i The for i in something syntax gives you all the *properties* on the *object* -- not the *elements* in the *array*.

This Prototype library is the worse :/ Also don't prototype the Array object, you damage the language this way. Array.prototype.a = 0; for(var i in []) alert(i);
