    Dynamic Image Popup Extension

    Shane930
      Hi, does anyone know of a free dynamic popup extension out there? So far the other image extensions I have found all require a .jpg file. I am using it for a dynamic page and need to use it with a dynamic attribute <img src="#photos.primaryImage1#">.

      Thanks

          Well it looks like there are two extensions that will do part of the job for what I want. The first on is CMXCFPopup.mxp by Bill Horvath. This one is $3.00 and it works fine with my repeating region page but it does not work so far with a detail page that has multiple dynamic images.

          The second one is dbJustSoPWbMX.mxp by E. Michael Brandt. The problem with this one is that the extension is only written for ASP currently. I have emailed Michael to see if there is a chance he will update it to CF.

          Thanks

            As a follow-up, Shane tells me that he got the extension to work on the
            detail page by cushioning the code with cfoutput tags. Glad you got it
            working Shane.

              Hi, Bill's extension is the only almost free ($3) dynamic image popup out there for CF. I have looked everywhere and if you need something that works slick with MySQL then this is it. I thought adding the width and height fields to my photo table was going to be a negative but in reality it has been a real plus. By setting the default to 4:3 ratio of any size you can custom tailor the popup to be any size you want. This has worked out great for my application.

              I did get an email back from Michael also on the dbJustSoPWbMX.mxp extension and at this time he is not planning on updating it for CF.

              Thanks Bill again for the input, also communitymx.com is an awesome site!
