Classic ASP View Images From Folder in Lightbox

Classic ASP VBScript

Hello, all.


I have a main Folder ("Commonparts2").

I created a FSO script to list all the Subfolders inside the "Commonparts2" folder, and made them hyperlinks.

I created a nested FSO script to list the image files found within each Subfolder.

Those list fine.


Now... I'm trying to actually display those images in a Lightbox, grouped by the respective Subfolder name.

The Lightbox comes on the screen, but continues to load, like it's not finding the image...

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I have attached the code I have for now.


Thank you,
Shane

In this portion of your code, where are you displaying anything?

for each imagefile in imagefolder.files
  'Print the name of all files in the test folder
  'Response.write(imagefile.Name & "<br>")

imagepath=strpath&imagefile.Name
imagepath=replace(imagepath,"\","/")

' **** Something should be here response.write imagepath

next

Open in new window

Hi, padas.

Well, initially, I had this code (take from just above the "imagefile" loop):

  'Print the name of all subfolders in the test folder
  Response.write("<a href="&imagepath&" rel=lightbox["&x.Name&"]>"&x.Name&"</a><br>")


... but that lists the subfolder for each occurrence of a file in that subfolder.
(i.e. Subfolder "M1000A" may be listed 5 times, if it finds 5 images in that folder).


That's where my confusion is... I'm trying to:
- Get just the subfolder to list once
- Click that subfolder and display all images inside that folder in a Lightbox to "Next" through them

So... the code may be out of whack, which is why I desperately need help.  lol


Thanks,
Shane

I would suggest starting a new question and make a working sample http://sscce.org 

Make sure to have a full working link including the serverside code.  My guess is what you need is part asp/vb and part javascript/jquery
