How to make use of it:

1. Start by inserting the yBox’s JavaScript and CSS into the HTML doc.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/css/yBox.min.css" />
<script src="dist/js/yBox.min.js"></script>

2. Initialize the yBox library and we’re able to go.

window.onload = function(){
    var myYbox = new yBox();

3. Show a primary lightbox when needed.

myYbox.yBox('Lightbox Content Here');

4. Load content from any component throughout the doc.

<div style="display:none;">
  <div id="modalContent">
    Modal Content here
<a class="yBox" href="#modalContent">Launch The Lightbox</a>

5. Open an iframe within the lightbox. Ideal for Youtube videos.

<a href="" class="yBox yBox_iframe">
  Open The Youtube Video

6. Load content through AJAX.

<a href="" class="yBox yBox_ajax">
  Launch The Lightbox

7. Apply a further CSS class to the lightbox.

<a class="yBox" data-popup-class="customClass" href="#modalContent">Launch The Lightbox</a>

8. Create a gallery lightbox from a bunch of photos.

<a href="1.jpg" class="yBox" data-ybox-group="group1">
  // Add Image Here
<a href="2.jpg" class="yBox" data-ybox-group="group1">
  // Add Image Here
<a href="3.jpg" class="yBox" data-ybox-group="group1">
  // Add Image Here

9. Event handlers.

myYbox.onYboxOpen = function(){
  // Fired when yBox is opened

myYbox.onYboxClose = function(){
  // fired when yBox is closed

myYbox.onNextItemClick = function(){
  // fired when clicking next button

myYbox.onPrevItemClick = function(){
  // fired when clicking prev button
