AJAX-ZOOM examples with iframes

example2

Open AJAX-ZOOM in a lightbox / modal window from a link (click event) within an iframe.

The content can be a 360-degree product spin, 3D product view, a gallery or one plain image. The example uses Fancybox and Colorbox to illustrate the procedure.

example6_cms

Responsive inline images with hover zoom effect and progressive zoom feature on click. The AJAX-ZOOM viewer with progressive zoom feature opens in responsive lightbox or at fullscreen.

You can also configure the extension to replace the entire image with AJAX-ZOOM viewer on click. The viewer fills the space of the image. User can close the viewer and restore the image.

In the example, you can switch between these diverse opening modes.

It is great for editorial content because the HTML essentially consists out of an "img" tag. Editors can easily insert this tag into text via WYSIWYG editor of any CMS.

example13

Load AJAX-ZOOM inside an iframe. This is the simplest way to put in place AJAX-ZOOM anywhere.

You can place as many instances on one page as you like. Full screen views work on desktop and mobile devices as well. Using "lazyload" to postpone loading of the content inside iframe is possible and the example demonstrates how to implement it.

The content of the viewer inside iframe can be an image gallery, a 3D / 360 product rotation or one high-resolution image with progressive zoom. Since AJAX-ZOOM viewer is responsive, it will adjust to the size of responsive iframe automatically.

In this example, AJAX-ZOOM loads into responsive Fancybox. This is a slightly modified, first generation Fancybox script (MIT). Instead of loading source images, the script loads AJAX-ZOOM viewer with deep zoom and optional thumbnails gallery. It can also load AJAX-ZOOM 360 viewer. The modifications to the first generation Fancybox core JavaScript however, do not affect the default functionality! Thus, you can use it for both purposes.

For invoking AJAX-ZOOM with Fancybox in such a way, we have created a wrapper extension. This separate $.openAjaxZoomInFancyBox plugin triggers and manages the AJAX-ZOOM viewer inside the Fancybox. It also makes the first generation Fancybox responsive. $.openAjaxZoomInFancyBox works even with Fancybox 2 core JavaScript without any changes in the core of Fancybox 2 JavaScript file.

This example can also serve as a tutorial about defining the content that you want to load into AJAX-ZOOM viewer! It lists by example all possible query string parameters (zoomData, zoomDir, 3dDir, zoomFile and zoomID). These are the parameters AJAX-ZOOM supports out of the box to define flat images and paths for the 360 viewer. The example also explains how you can compress the parameter values. Compressing helps to hide direct image paths from exposing them to the public and shorten the length of the query string.

Modules / plugins

It is not required to use the AJAX-ZOOM "Modules / plugins / extensions", as AJAX-ZOOM can be used as stand-alone application or integrated manually nearly in any system. However, if a module is available for your system, it will facilitate and speed up the integration of AJAX-ZOOM into your CMS or e-commerce / shopping cart tremendously. If your server meets all technical requirements, then you will have AJAX-ZOOM running in your system within two minutes. You can install and configure these AJAX-ZOOM modules with just a few clicks and without writing a single line of code.

Compatibility

License

The license price primarily depends on the number of different images that display in AJAX-ZOOM image viewer on a domain. Unlimited options are available. The prices for the regular licenses are one-time payment! You can find the complete license agreement and price list on the download page. Before ordering, we advise you to download and test the demo (light) version within your development environment.

If necessary, we can issue time-limited license keys free of charge. However, AJAX-ZOOM and AJAX-ZOOM modules / plugins for diverse CMS and shopping carts should work with few restrictions without entering any licensing data! If something does not work as expected, there must be a different reason than missing license. Do not hesitate to contact AJAX-ZOOM support if you encounter any technical difficulties.
