Passing links without url navigation, ASP.NET
Posted on 2009-02-14
I'm wanting to implement something 'similar' to the 'Lightbox' feature that is floating around everywhere, but for a much different purpose. I really want to avoid using the Lightbox script for a number of reasons.
The main thing is that I want to be able to pass data to a control without having to pre-render all of the controls. An example given is to list a series of image thumbnails, and each one would trigger an existing control on the page, but the content of the control would change based on the image clicked.
Essentially I need to take a link and render a pop-up modal dialog with it - but I need dozens of links on the page, and the dialog will change depending on the image clicked , and there will be other page elements in the dialog that relate to it.
