Lightweight Mootools implementation of a lightbox with a gradient that can be applied and configured.

Integrate the slideshow by using the following STEP BY STEP instructions

Navigation:
- Click on an image to start the slideshow
- Previous picture: click on the left part of the window or hit left arrow key
- Next picture: click on the right part of the window or hit right arrow key
- Exit: click on the picture or hit the escape key

 

Features:

  • - Start with the picture you click on
  • - gradient background (FF, Safari, Chrome only)
  • - click on the right of the picture to display the next picture
  • - click on the left of the picture to display the previous picture
  • - look at the js for the different available options
  • - disable scrollbar during slideshow
  • - resize the picture on window resize
  • - keyboard control
  • - dynamic size of the slideshow: based on the pictures in the page having the same class

STEP BY STEP

1- add the class 'swGradientLightbox' to any picture you want to activate the slideshow (class name can be changed, see step 6)

example:

<img src='images/image4.jpg' class='swGradientLightbox'/> 

 

 

2- in the folder where you put the pictures, a big version of the picture should be present with postfix -big

example: image4.jpg -> image4-big.jpg
-> Tip: you can set bigImagePostfix to '' if you want to use the same image (see step 6, use: var gradientLightbox = new SwGradientLightbox({bigImagePostfix: ''});

3- CSS: Copy, paste and adapt:

 

#gradient-bg { position:absolute; }
#slideshow-holder { position:relative; background:url(images/ajax-loader.gif) center center no-repeat; }
#progress { position:absolute; top:0; left:0; text-align:center; color:#999; }

#grad-bottom-left {
position:absolute;
background:#eee;
background:-webkit-gradient( linear, left bottom, right top, color-stop(0.25, rgb(170,170,170)), color-stop(0.4, rgb(255,255,255)) );
background:-moz-linear-gradient( left bottom, rgb(170,170,170) 25%, rgb(255,255,255) 40% );
filter: alpha(opacity = 70);
opacity: 0.70;
}
#grad-bottom-right {
position:absolute;
background:#eee;
background:-webkit-gradient( linear, right bottom, left top, color-stop(0.25, rgb(170,170,170)), color-stop(0.4, rgb(255,255,255)) );
background:-moz-linear-gradient( right bottom, rgb(170,170,170) 25%, rgb(255,255,255) 40% );
filter: alpha(opacity = 70);
opacity: 0.70;
}
#grad-top-left {
position:absolute;
background:#eee;
background:-webkit-gradient( linear, left top, right bottom, color-stop(0.25, rgb(170,170,170)), color-stop(0.4, rgb(255,255,255)) );
background:-moz-linear-gradient( left top, rgb(170,170,170) 25%, rgb(255,255,255) 40% );
filter: alpha(opacity = 70);
opacity: 0.70;
}
#grad-top-right {
position:absolute;
background:#eee;
background:-webkit-gradient( linear, right top, left bottom, color-stop(0.25, rgb(170,170,170)), color-stop(0.4, rgb(255,255,255)) );
background:-moz-linear-gradient( right top, rgb(170,170,170) 25%, rgb(255,255,255) 40% );
filter: alpha(opacity = 70);
opacity: 0.70;
}
#left-arrow {
font-size: 0px; line-height: 0%; width: 0px;
border-top: 25px solid transparent;
border-right: 50px solid black;
border-right: 50px solid rgba(0,0,0,.7);
border-bottom: 25px solid transparent;
position:absolute;
height: 0px;
width: 0px;
}
#right-arrow {
font-size: 0px; line-height: 0%; width: 0px;
border-top: 25px solid transparent;
border-left: 50px solid black;
border-left: 50px solid rgba(0,0,0,.7);
border-bottom: 25px solid transparent;
position:absolute;
height: 0px;
width: 0px;
}

 

 

4- copy and include the .js files (preferably right before </body>)

 

 

<script src="lib/mootools/mootools-1.2.4-core-jm.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="lib/mootools/mootools-1.2.4.4-more-assets.js" type="text/javascript"> </script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/swGradientLightbox.js"></script>

where <OPTION> can be:
className: all pictures in the page that want to appear in the slideshow should have this class
bigImagePostfix: ex: if the thumbnail is 'image.jpg' and bigImagePostfix id '-big' (default) the slideshow will display 'image-big.jpg'
gradientBgId: id of the lightbox

7- (optional) Use the 'onStart' callback by adapting the SwGradientLightbox instantiation:

- replace the 3rd line of the script in step 5 by:

 

5- include this after the lines included in step 4

 

<script language="JavaScript">
window.addEvent('domready',function() {
var gradientLightbox = new SwGradientLightbox();
});
</script>

 

 

6- (optional): options

replace the 3 line of the script in step 5 by:

var fm = new SwGradientLightbox({<OPTION>:<VALUE>, <OPTION>:<VALUE>...}}); 

 

where <OPTION> can be:
className: all pictures in the page that want to appear in the slideshow should have this class
bigImagePostfix: ex: if the thumbnail is 'image.jpg' and bigImagePostfix id '-big' (default) the slideshow will display 'image-big.jpg'
gradientBgId: id of the lightbox

7- (optional) Use the 'onStart' callback by adapting the SwGradientLightbox instantiation:

- replace the 3rd line of the script in step 5 by:

var fm = new SwFolderMenu('swFolderMenu', 'images/misc', {onStart : function(){<YOUR_CODE>}});
