Recommend a modal box plugin?

  1. Can I get some recommendations for a modal box (lightbox) plugin?

    The functionality I'm after is fairly simple. I want the user to click the link, have my gravity form popup in a box and then have my confirmation redirect happen inside the same modal box.

    I've been through a dozen or so plugins with spotty luck. I thought I'd ask if there was something commonly in use before I picked a direction at random and started troubleshooting.

    Thanks!

  3. Thanks Rob. That almost works. Is there a way in gravity forms to specify an iframe for the confirmation redirect url?

  4. The confirmation area accepts HTML, so you can place an iframe in there. Just be sure to disable the auto-formatting.

  5. I'm so close to getting this to work, but nothing I put into the confirmation box loads properly. Does gravity forms strip the style sheets from anything in the confirmation area?

  6. Can you post a link to your form so we can check it out and see the current state?

  7. Sure. http://www.training.proofpoint.com/content/general-information/

    If you click on the picture or "watch the video" link, you can see the form come up. In the confirmation window I have 3 different styles of lightbox (2 fancybox and one lytebox) and all of them seem to ignore the class and open just like a regular link...

    Thanks!

  8. Any thoughts on why nothing class based works in the confirmation box? I'm far from a css master, but I don't see anything that over rides the css in use outside the gravityform confirmation window...

  9. So you are trying to open a lightbox from within a lightbox it seems? Why not just place the video code into the confirmation area - is that not option for what you are trying to do?

  10. Honestly, all I want to do is open a new iframe inside the existing lightbox. I'm just flailing for a way to make it work... I started with a Camtasia video because I thought it would be easiest, but most of the content is going to be elearning pages from Adobe Captivate. Nothing that could easily be embedded on it's own.

    I did try a few more combinations and it turns out a youtube video embeds just fine and some webpages also work, but most do not. I tried a plain "hello world" type page and it didn't show up but a really complicated flash test page works just fine. Which started me thinking that maybe it's a layer problem and the iframe works, it's just covered up by the yellow? So I experimented a bit and it seem like the browser is loading the page and the files, it just doesn't show up on the screen. Could it be something as simple as the confirmation background is somehow covering them up?
