Does anyone have a reference to a site or a how-to guide with something that has a simple image click that will do something to the lightbox effect but then the actual lightbox will be an imagemap? An example would be like the SalesForce image found on:
How do I accomplish this in reality?
(Click “expand” – this is all I want of my FIRST image, my second image I want an imagemap…).
This appears to have an imagemap pop out to a lightbox. I want the inverse. Basically, the first image be the popout (one image popout to the lightbox which will contain an imagemap which will be linked to multiple webpages).
Do you understand what I mean?
Image > Lightbox > Inside lightbox will be an image with areas (imagemap) and when areas are clicked you are taken to those mapped areas.
So, basically a “lightbox;” however, the popped out lightbox will CONTAIN the imagemap. Not the first clicked image on the webpage…
I’m just expecting simple webpages to pop up. They are going to be links to the internal site (that was referenced in the initial image). Again, it’s kind of like salesforce.com does in the initial message, just not using Flash.
Preferably, I’d like them to load in the original Window the lightbox loaded from, but I do not even know if this is possible. I can test it and see though.
If your expecting different sized popups for the lightwindow then it’s probably best you use either an ajax call (i’d recommend using colorbox - http://colorpowered.com/colorbox/) and have your markup in a seperate html file OR if you dont have many things that you will be using the lightbox for you can place them on the original page and just load them as inline HTML
