DHTML Window - Close by clicking outside window
riospace

 12:27 am on May 21, 2012 (gmt 0)

I recently switched my image galleries from Lightbox to DHTML windows and I can not figure out how to have the window close when clicking outside of the DHTML window popup.

I do have an "x" in the top of the window to close the window, but I also want users to be able to close the window by clicking anywhere outside of the window as it did when I was using Lightbox for my images.

- find the handler for the x, for example it might be

$('#myx').click(function() {
// initiate window close
});

- find the element that represents the transparent overlay, for example, it might be named #page-overlay.

- Add this element to the function that initiates the close.

$('#myx,#page-overlay').click(function() {
// initiate window close
});

Here is the code, not sure about page-overlay?

'/files/restore.gif', '/files/resize.gif'], //Path to 4 images used by script, in that order

ajaxloadinghtml: '<b>Loading Page. Please wait...</b>', //HTML to show while window fetches Ajax Content?

Where would I make the changes to the code?

...or try Shadowbox.

Shadowbox is great, but I was wanted to use DHTML windows so that I could add social sharing links to the windows.
