Pop Box Magic (PBX) allows you to attach a responsive popup box to any link on your page. Links can be text or images. The PBX interface allows you to style the trigger link and the popup box however you want. You also have a choice in how your popups are activated. By default, activation is via mouse over, but you can also set activation to click. If mouse-over is set, activation on a touch device will continue to work with a normal finger tap. Hover over (or tap) this PBX Trigger to popup the first example.
Mouse over or tap the screen capture below to see more information. The Popbox will open at your cursor position.
Use the links below to view Pop Box Magic examples. Experience the power that only a PVII Dreamweaver extension can provide! For consistency, all triggers below are optionally set to operate on mouse over, or tap on a touch device (Trigger action can also be set to click only).
Configure your Pop Box to display as a classic tool tip. The trigger link below is buttonized, rounded, and set to animate.
Pop Boxes can contain images! The trigger link below is set to Text-Light.
This mode will center the Pop Box in your viewport. It is recommended that when using the centered option, you set your trigger to click.
The content inside your Pop Box can be styled any way you like. In the following example, we used Layout Builder Magic to create a 2-column structure.
As described in the features list, PBX supports any type of content, including iframe-based videos and Google maps. The following example pops up a video in a PBX Lightbox window. The trigger is set to work on mouse over. A the Pop Box will stay open until you either click the close icon, press your ESC key, or click somewhere on your window off the box.
These examples serve to illustrate some of the things you can do with Pop Box Magic. What you can actually do is limited only by your imagination. Virtually anything is possible! Need to display a Google Map? No problem. A contact form? Piece of cake. Pop Box Magic is another PVII tool that makes Dreamweaver better.
This Pop Box, as well as the ones nested inside, are activated on mouse over (hover). You can also set your Pop Boxes to open on click only. On touch devices, a simple tap is ll that is needed, no matter what. When nesting PBX, remember to keep the trigger behavior consistent. If enabling mouse over on the parent, do so on all nested instances, as well.
Pop Box Magic is easy to customize, and also comes with several themes that can be set in the user interface.
Use PBX to display simple text Popups in a tooltip-type manner.
