flashLightBoxInjector spinoff: flashShadowboxInjector

pictureflow.gifWith the release of PictureFlow 2.7 – a Flash Coverflow implementation – the author osamwal has switched from Lightbox to the multifunctional Shadowbox which provides extra functionality like showing videos and websites in a Lightbox style.

As PictureFlow 2.6 depended on Lightbox to show the enlarged versions of the linked to images, flashLightBoxInjector was used to start Lightbox from within Flash. With the new release – and switch to Shadowbox – the PictureFlow author rewrote flashLightBoxInjector to work with Shadowbox and – cleverly – named it flashShadowboxInjector.

In order to lay your hands on flashShadowboxInjector, head over to the PictureFlow project page and download the latest version.

Kudos to osamwal for creating PictureFlow and rewriting flashShadowboxInjector!

Happy coding!
