    jBox

    jBox is a jQuery plugin that makes it easy to create customizable tooltips, modal windows, image galleries and more.

    Tooltips

    Create a new instance of jBox Tooltip and attach it to elements:

    new jBox('Tooltip', {
      attach: '.tooltip'
    });
    

    Now elements with class="tooltip" will open tooltips:

    <span class="tooltip" title="My first tooltip">Hover me!</span>
    <span class="tooltip" title="My second tooltip">Hover me!</span>
    

    You can set up modal windows the same way as tooltips. But most of times you'd want more variety, like a title or HTML content:

    new jBox('Modal', {
      width: 300,
      height: 200,
      attach: '#myModal',
      title: 'My Modal Window',
      content: '<i>Hello there!</i>'
    });
    
    <div id="myModal">Click me to open a modal window!</div>
    

    Confirm windows

    Confirm windows are modal windows which requires the user to confirm a click action on an element. Give an element the attribute data-confirm to attach it:

    new jBox('Confirm', {
      confirmButton: 'Do it!',
      cancelButton: 'Nope'
    });
    
    <div onclick="alert('Yay! You did it!')" data-confirm="Do you really want to do this?">Click me!</div>
    <a href="https://stephanwagner.me/jBox" data-confirm="Do you really want to leave this page?">Click me!</a>
    

    Notices

    A notice will open automatically and destroy itself after some time:

    new jBox('Notice', {
     content: 'Hurray! A notice!'
    });
    

    Images

    To create image windows you only need following few lines:

    new jBox('Image');
    
    <a href="/image-large.jpg" data-jbox-image="gallery1" title="My image"><img src="/image.jpg" alt=""></a>

    These few examples are very basic. The jBox library is quite powerful and offers a vast variety of options to customize appearance and behavior. Learn more in the documentation: https://stephanwagner.me/jBox/documentation
