YoxView JavaScript lightbox 2.0 is now out! Skinning, Flash video, and more

Filed under: ,


YoxView is one of my favorite lightbox implementations. I’ve used it in the past to show you how to add an awesome Picasa or Flickr slideshow to your website. YoxView’s development has progressed by leaps and bounds since then, and version 2.0 brings some interesting improvements to the table, including:

  • Skinning support: I think this one’s pretty unique. There’s not much chrome to skin on a lightbox, but still, it’s nice to be able to brand the lightbox and package it nicely for future use (or for use by other developers).
  • Inline Flash content: You just need to specify an FLV/F4V/SWF file in the link, and YoxView will display it. You can set width, height, and Flash variables.
  • Inline content: You can now display a ton of other inline content (for example, PDFs). I don’t remember seeing a lightbox that can display a PDF file – that’s a neat one, for sure.

There have been lots of other changes, and as per usual with new software releases, a whole bunch of bugs have been squashed.

And of course, YoxView’s core strength remains; it can very easily pull images from Picasa, Flicker, and other online sources and display them right in your site. So, if you ever think of adding a video/image/document gallery to your site, YoxView is one worthy option to check out.
