Have you ever had a DOM element that you wanted lightboxed, but didn't want all the fanciness of all the lightbox-related plug-ins out there? Lightbox_me is for you.

Lightbox_me is an essential tool for the jQuery developer's toolbox. Feed it a DOM element wrapped in a jQuery object and it will lightbox it for you, no muss no fuss.


  Lightbox_me handles all of those annoying edge cases that other lightbox solutions do not:

  •      Handles overlay resize when the window is resized
  •      Handles overlay size in cases where the document is smaller than the window
  •      Handles position: fixed in all browsers
  •      Position: fixed automatically swaps to position: absolute when the window size is smaller than the modal, so the user can scroll to see the contents

In addition it's got these other nice features:

  •      Tiny footprint (just over 1000 bytes gzipped & compressed)
  •      Small DOM overhead (adds 1 DOM element for the overlay)
  •      Dynamic iFrame shim is created and destroyed for the IE 6 select box peek issue (tested and working on https pages)
  •      Supports IE 6+, Firefox 2.5+, Safari, Chrome (haven't tested in Opera yet)
