  1. Lightbox Bad, SlimBox Good

    The title overstates the point. Both these scripts in their latest versions are pretty darn good as are many of the other Lightbox type scripts out there (see end for two others or Google Lightbox for more, though not all are as good as those mentioned here, many including the original Lightbox mentioned in the title of this blog entry are).

    Here's the real story -

    Some time ago Dynamic Drive's Lightbox by Lokesh Dhakar was added to the Dynamic Drive official scripts. ...

  2. Sticky Tooltip script Unofficial Update

    The Sticky Tooltip script has some room for updating as I've outlined here:

    Sticky Tooltip script - not sticky

    and here:

    Sticky Tooltip script - no dock in IE 7- for image map

    In those threads I offer piecemeal solutions, the first of which above is the most problematic:

  3. Styling Descriptions for Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.1)

    There are actually 4 css selectors that can figure in this. Only three of them really matter. If you only have one show on your page, you only need to think about the last two. The selectors are:

    1. The id of the show, #fadeshow1, for example.

    2. .fadeslidedescdiv - the class for all description containers.

    3. .descpanelbg - the class for all description backgrounds.

    4. .descpanelfg - the class for all description foregrounds.

  4. Get Style

    Sometimes we want to get the style of something. But, since it wasn't set inline or via javascript, or perhaps was set in a stylesheet using the:

    Code:
    !important
    keyword that overrides inline and javascript assignments, we cannot access it. Here is a fairly robust script that will allow us to do so in many cases:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

  5. Combining Ultimate Fade-in Slideshow 2.1 and Lightwindow 2.0

    I've found that this actually can work. It makes an interesting use of the slide show's undocumented oninit feature, and how well the slide show is written visa vis jQuery's No Conflict mode. I would generally advise using two scripts which work off of the same script library, rather than two different script libraries. However, in this case both scripts are so robust, who can resist?

    That said, all you need to do to set up a demo is to follow the instructions for Ultimate Fade ...
