LightBox MDB Pro component

Bootstrap lightbox

Bootstrap lightbox is a group of images combined in one responsive gallery. Elements are grouped in thumbnail grid, which can be displayed as a slideshow.


Basic example

Initialization required

To use our Lightbox you have to initialize it in your project with the code below.

Initialization code:



        // MDB Lightbox Init
        $(function () {
        $("#mdb-lightbox-ui").load("mdb-addons/mdb-lightbox-ui.html");
        });

      

Predefined image size

MDB LightBox uses the same image in 2 different sizes: thumbnail and large.

Such an approach let you increase the performance of your website.



        <figure class="col-md-4">
          <!--Large image-->
          <a href="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/Nature/12-col/img%20(114).jpg" data-size="1600x1067">
            <!-- Thumbnail-->
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/Nature/4-col/img%20(114).jpg" class="img-fluid">
          </a>
        </figure>
      

Important:

1. data-size attribute should be the same as the size of the Large Image

2. Thumbnail and Large Image should have the same ratio

3. Thumbnail should be 544px wide

4. Large image shouldn't be wider than 1800px

Map of dependencies of SCSS files in MDBootstrap:


    Legend:

    '-->' means 'required'

    All free and pro files require files from 'core' catalog

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working

    All PRO components require 'pro/_variables.scss' file
