Lightbox for SharePoint

Few weeks ago a user posted a comment on the forum stating that a Lightbox webpart for SharePoint didn’t work with SPSlideShow. After some checking, it looked like there’s no go solution since Lightbox is based on a JavaScript which is incompatible with the one used in SPSlideShow. Our solution: a new, free, Lightbox clone (milkbox) based web part: SPElements Picture Gallery.

SPElements Picture Gallery works with Picture Library and displays clickable thumbnails gallery from the pictures in the library, which can either: (a) create lightbox-like popup, (b) open the image in the browser or (c) open the image item. All configurable by the SharePoint webpart administrator.

    Where I work we are not able to use a SharePoint installer but we can import webparts. Is it possible to provide a webpart solution we can upload and select?

    You need to be SharePoint administrator to install Web Parts. Installing Web Parts with-out SharePoint installer is probably better since you got more control, but it’s a bit more complicated. Search the web for: how to install wsp stsadm
    Here’s a reference I found: http://littletalk.wordpress.com/2008/12/16/steps-to-install-wsp-file-in-stsadm/
    You can check also here: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/sharepoint/WssPictureThumbnails.aspx (search for STSADM).

    How are you getting four images at once? I just get a single slide show…

  4. admin says:

    It’s a different web part. The slide show is SPSlideShow, the Lightbox thumbnails is ‘SPElements Picture Gallery’ web part.

    Thnks for your excellent work. Well, I need source code for “SPElements Picture Gallery”. I have to modify thumbnail view as will as pop-up slide show to add additional information.

    Please send me link to download source code or forward to my email address.

    At the moment the code is not ready to be released. Maybe after v1.0 this web part will be open source too.
