Open Lightbox with JavaScript function


Is there a way to toggle the Lightbox on and off programmatic. For example, I would like to control how the Lightbox opens and closes. Do you guys have a developers guide to this. Let me know. Thank you.

PS I know html5Lightbox.finish() will help close it. But what is the global function to open the lightbox?


You can call the JavaScript API to open the Lightbox, for example:

Open image:

html5Lightbox.showLightbox(0, 'images/Toronto_1024.jpg', 'Image lightbox');

Open YouTube;

html5Lightbox.showLightbox(3, '', 'YouTube lightbox');
