JQUERY: Thickbox and Superbox, ModalBoxes for JQuery
Published on Friday, 20 July 2012 03:26
...modalboxes for prototype, mootools..., and where are the modalbox for Jquery??. Here it comes....
As usual there are more than one to choose from. Here are my favourites. The veteran Thickbox which is the version 3.1 and coming directly from France we have Superbox. Which are the differences, ..what could I say, ...there are almost none!!. Both can show:
- Inline Content
Both have almos same size (if you use the thickbox-compress), Superbox is around 200 bytes smaller. Both have a CSS which can be used to define de styles, you can changed the loader image, etc, etc. MIT License in both...
Maybe the differences may be in which browsers may be supported, ..thickbox has that info in its Homepage but no idea about superbox (I have tested over Explorer 7, Firefox 3 and Opera 9 with no problems). At any case these modalboxes run over Jquery so using extensively standard Jquery code and being caferull with CSS, then the browser shouldn't be an issue to worry about. Thickbox code, we could say, is more elegant meanwhile Superbox is more techie but this is just likes because both modalboxes work pretty good.
I had only one question when writting this post, ..which image to add..., in 3 seconds I starting laughing and wnet back to superbox project homepage..., which one better that the one from SuperBox Example???? :)
