Default Image Gallery

Hello Imar,

I was just curious. Do you have any advice on how someone who has knowledge gained from your book could go about tackling something like putting an image gallery on their site?

essentially what I want out of the gallery is showing a certain amount of images on a page with one large one uptop and with mouse click it going over to the picture.

An example of what I'm referring to can be seen here: http://timesharelifestyle.com/timeshares/AdNumber/40871

I realize that some AJAX will be involved but I was having trouble trying to find some examples on how to go about doing that on the web.

Thanks

Hi there,

The server you're linking to seems down, so I can't see what you mean exactly.

Have you ever heard of Lightbox? http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/ It enables you to display images in a gallery-like fashion. Using it comes down to dumping a bunch of <a> elements in a page with a specific class. You can dump the images in the page using a ListView for example, and then let Lightbox take care of the rest.

If that's not what you want, please let me know when the link is back up, or post some more information.

Cheers,

Imar

Wow, the lightbox is even more fancy than what I was originally thinking of doing and should work perfectly.

Thanks again for the link!
