SqueezeBox - Expandable Lightbox (v1.1)

Project SqueezeBox - Expandable Lightbox Showcase SqueezeBox is an unobtrusive LightBox inspired overlay, for modal boxed content on your site. It’s a snap to show images but just as easy to use HTML elements, Ajax requests, iFrames, SWF movies and more.

Showcases:

Showcase “Youtube Flash”

Inject flash content from Youtube.

The Action Happens Here

JavaScript & MooTools

SqueezeBox.parsers.swf = function(preset) {
	return (preset || this.url.test(/\.swf/)) ? this.url : false;
};
 
SqueezeBox.handlers.swf = function(url) {
	var size = this.options.size;
	return new Swiff(url, {
		id: 'sbox-swf',
		width: size.x,
		height: size.y
	});
};
 
window.addEvent('domready', function() {
 
	/**
	 * That CSS selector will find all <a> elements with the
	 * class boxed.
	 *
	 * The second argument sets additional options
	 */
	SqueezeBox.assign($$('a.boxed'), {
		parse: 'rel'
	});
 
});
