Doesn't LightWindow beat all the others?

I haven’t seen this one discussed yet in the forum but it looks awesome: http://www.stickmanlabs.com/lightwindow/
What would be the easiest way to implement this in FW websites? Note that with this one you are not limitted to pictures!

OK, you got a point here :slight_smile:
Are we talking about 100% same options here?

No, I had to cut many many features out – particularly the automatic
gallery stuff – so no it’s not exactly the same. But I use it because
it supports linking to most types of content without any fuss. It
simply handles more media types than most other windowing toolkits.

At some point I hope to go through the library again and see if I can
wire up more of the features. There are also some architectural
changes that really ought to be done to the library itself. It
requires invalid code if you want to take advantage of its parameter
passing system, and I would prefer that we used an actual part of the
A tag spec rather than creating a fake parameters attribute. Tim Plumb
shared a snippet of AppleScript that could be used to make certain
parts of the system more automatic.

The other thing to realize here is that LightWindow has been abandoned
by its creator, and there are a number of reports surfacing about it
being incompatible with IE8, and there’s certainly a problem with IE
6, although I do have a patch in there to work around that.

Hmmm… great stuff though, however if the creator is not quite happy yet than we might wel wait untill things get better?!

I think it’s not so much that the author is unhappy, it’s just that
he’s moved on to other things. The last update was in 2007, and he’s
moved to two different companies and kind of lost the scent of the
original project. It’s open source, anyone can (and should) pick it up
and move it forward, but I don’t see any progress toward that at the
moment.

I see. Thanks. In a way ScriptyLightBox can do a lot… we’ll stick to that for now :slight_smile:
