                <img
                  src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Thumbnails/Slides/1.jpg"
                  alt="Gallery image 1"
                  class="w-100"
                />

                  alt="Gallery image 2"
                  class="w-100"

                  alt="Gallery image 4"
                  class="w-100"
                />
              </MDBMultiCarousel>
            </template>
          
        
    
        
            
            <script>
              import { MDBMultiCarousel } from "mdb-vue-multi-carousel";

              export default {
                components: {
                  MDBMultiCarousel
                }
              };
            </script>
          
        
    
        
            
            <script setup lang="ts">
              import { MDBMultiCarousel } from "mdb-vue-multi-carousel";
            </script>
          
        
    

Lightbox integration

Wrap carousel by a div.lightbox element to enable lightbox.

Wrap carousel by a MDBLightbox element and add lightbox property to enable lightbox. Remember to update Lightbox images on Carousel's updateImages event.

To ensure the proper performance of the page, it is recommended to include thumbnails of images in the src attribute. Then in the fullScreenSrc attribute add the path to the image with higher resolution. If the fullScreenSrc attribute is omitted, the lightbox will display the same image as in the reduced size.

        
            
            <template>
              <MDBLightbox ref="lightboxRef">
                <MDBMultiCarousel
                  lightbox
                  @updateImage="updateImages"
                >
                  <img
