Hello All,
I am having trouble getting a datalist to use any of the lightbox or colorbox examples. I went as far as used the easy lightbox to work but it's not working either. What happens is that either JQuery or Javascript fire an exception that says: Microsoft JScript runtime error: Object doesn't support this property or method. What am I doing wrong????
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" runat="server">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/lightbox.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
    <script src="js/prototype.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
	<script src="js/scriptaculous.js?load=effects,builder" type="text/javascript"></script>
	<script src="js/lightbox.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">
    <script src="Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.js" type="text/javascript" />
    <script src="Scripts/script.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    
	
	
    <script type="text/javascript">

    </script>
    <div style="background-color: Gray; color: White;">
        <h1 style="color: White;">
            Photo Gallery</h1>
    </div>
    <div>
        Listing for the photo gallery.
        <asp:DataList runat="Server" ID="rptImages" RepeatColumns="4">
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:HyperLink runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("FilePath") %>' Title='<%# Eval("FilePath") %>' 
                CssClass="lightbox">
                    <asp:Image runat="Server" 
                                ImageUrl='<%# Eval("FilePath") %>' 
                                Height="200"
                                Width="200" 
                                
                                 />
                </asp:HyperLink>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:DataList>
    </div>
</asp:Content>

Hi,
The problem here is that you are using prototype library and jQuery library together which causes conflicts because of $ sign.

See this link to solve conflicts.

I'm sorry, I got caught up with a few work projects that kept me away from this project.

No, there is not an online version currently but I can work on that in the next couple of days if you still want to help.

ok, as I was guessing it there is a conflict between lightbox and jquery. check this link:
http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.noConflict/


you may also use other photo gallery libraries like this one: http://leandrovieira.com/projects/jquery/lightbox/

but first try with noConflict.

I tried noconflict but I couldn't get it to work right. But I used the other photo gallery and it worked flawlessly. Thanks for you help!
