View Full Version : Click Through Picture Gallery in Dreamweaver

05-07-2010, 09:31 PM
I'm assuming most of you will tell me to do this in flash. I can do great slide shows in flash, but haven't done much linking. However, I am wondering about doing a click through gallery (back and forward arrows) in a pop up window IN DREAMWEAVER.
I have created something ALMOST perfectly functional in Dreamweaver BUT
The problem is I used javascript "open new browser window" in my link buttons b/c I want to use my pop up window that is 700 x 500. I also included a close link in each window, but now once all are clicked through all the windows are open on top of each other and each close button closes one window, but not all of them.

My question: Is it possible to do a link that closes the current window while opening the new window (for example on the little arrow image I have)
I have the behavior "open browser window", but can I add a close to the current image at the same time???

I'd look at one of the many modal/light boxes available.

Fancy Box: http://fancybox.net/
Lightbox2: http://www.lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/
Color Box: http://colorpowered.com/colorbox/
Shadow Box: http://www.shadowbox-js.com/index.html

Personally colorbox is my favourite. Hope that helps.
