Facebook Style Modal Boxes with Transparent Border

Posted · Category: MIT License, Popup

We have seen many modal box script (e.g. Prototype Window, Multibox, Modalbox and etc). I would like to introduce something a little bit difference to you guys. Here are the following two Facebook-style modal boxes. Both of them have a sexy transparent border which looks really stylish.

1) Facebox is a jQuery-based, Facebook-style lightbox which can display images, divs, or entire remote pages. It’s simple to use and easy on the eyes. Download the tarball, view the examples, then start enjoying the curves.


2) GlassBox is a compact Javascript User Interface (UI) library, which use Prototype and Script.aculo.us for some effects. With GlassBox you can build transparent border, colorful layouts and “Flash-like” effects. The GlassBox library is easy to use, customizable and skinnable, and it comes with a coherent API and documentation.


Requirements: Any Modern Browsers, IE 6, Firefox 2, Opera 9 and Safari 3

  • Nice! I’m gonna go with FaceBox as it integrates with jQuery.

  • Does anyone think jquery seems to be taking dominance in the JavaScript framework department? Personally I use mootools, but I have been impressed by the recent developments

  • Impressive.

  • Excelent about glassbox! I´ll use it. ;D

  • My firefox didn’t like the glassbox at first. Only at third atempt i could load the page well, it was stuck at “loading images”, strange!
    But after everything loaded, it’s a great application, i love the transparency

    Thanks! I allready knew Facebox (and really like it) but glassbox looks even more beautiful! Both are great tools!

  • Yes Rob, jQuery is becoming very popular b/c it’s so light weight but feature rich. Wen you compress/pack the code it is about half the size. It also has plugins so it’s easy to work with.
