    every one looking to make dynamic lightbox

    you can go here first and download the dll


    and you will find example but its static

    if you need to make it dynamic from your database

    first you have to copy the dll in your bin folder and lightboxNet in your root

    then call the dll in your toolbox


    <%@ Register assembly="LightBox" namespace="LightBox" tagprefix="lbn" %>

    drag a ScriptManager on your page


    <lbn:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" InstallFiles="True" />
    then write this style in the head 
        <style type="text/css" media="screen">
            font: 76% 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Verdana, sans-serif;
     put your listview
    <asp:ListView  ID="ListView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" 
            GroupItemCount="4"  >
                            <table runat="server" border="0" id="table1">
                            <tr id="groupPlaceholder">
                            <tr runat="server" id="tablerow">
                                <td id="itemPlaceholder" runat="server">
                            <td runat="server">
                                 <span style="background-color: #ffffff;color: #00000;">
                                <br />
                                                         <lbn:HyperLink ID="Hyperlink1" runat='server' group="Plants" ImageUrl='<%# Eval("image", "~/character_images/{0}" ) %>'NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("image", "~/character_images/{0}" ) %>'ToolTip='<%# Eval("charachter_name" ) %>'>

    let say that I want small and big pictures of example "yachts" not just big pictures and then resized like small ones...

    And I want to have in database stored  for every "yacht" only folders locations of small and big pictures of every yacht..


    yachtID=1       yacht=Ferretti570         smallPictureFolder=~/img/Ferretti570/small/             bigPictureFolder=~/img/Ferretti570/big/

    grab small images with some variable in code like:

    string[] smallImages=Directory.GetFiles(smallPictureFolder from Database that is called in page from querystring where yachtID=1) 

     How to connect smallpicture with bigpicture,when I click small picture that it opens me that same big picture,can it be done in that matter that small and big picture have same number in name but just different folder name - how to connect them.....

    I'm using Asp.net 3.5 Framework..

    You need to specify Querystring parametar("destinationID") in page url to load pictures in web page for each destination...

    if you want to load first big picture on page load you need to little modify source code..

    you need..

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


    if (!Page.IsPostBack)


    FormView1.DataSourceID =




    FormView1.DataSourceID =



     You need to change SqlDataSource3 SeletCommand to this below ..and that is all..

    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource3" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:GalleryConnectionString %>"


    SelectCommand="SELECT TOP (1) DestinationGallery.* FROM DestinationGallery WHERE (destinationID = @destinationID)">


    if you want to simulate loading big picture on local machine you will add this..........---> you must remove this when you upload it on server 


    protected void Link1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    Wow, thanks. I just need to digest this code. Just for confirmation, this windows loads inside the lightbox right? I just skimmed through and I didn't see any tag with the "group" or "rel' attribute, i'll figure it out later. In any case, much appreciated.
