amp-lightbox-gallery

Description

Provides a "lightbox” experience. Upon user interaction, a UI component expands to fill the viewport until it is closed by the user.

Required Scripts

<script async custom-element="amp-lightbox-gallery" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-lightbox-gallery-0.1.js"></script>

Usage

The amp-lightbox-gallery component provides a "lightbox" experience for AMP components (e.g., amp-img, amp-carousel). When the user interacts with the AMP element, a UI component expands to fill the viewport until it is closed by the user. Currently, only images are supported.

To use amp-lightbox-gallery, ensure the required script is included in your <head> section, then add the lightbox attribute on an <amp-img> or <amp-carousel> element.

For showing individual images in a lightbox, there's also the <amp-image-lightbox> component. To display other types of elements in a lightbox, use <amp-lightbox>.

Display a lightbox with <amp-img>

Tapping on any <amp-img> opens the image in a lightbox gallery. The lightbox gallery does image-handling (e.g., zoom and pan), enables swiping to navigate between images, and offers a thumbnail gallery view for browsing all picture thumbnails in a grid.

<amp-img src="cat.jpg" width="100" height="100" lightbox></amp-img>
<amp-img src="dog.jpg" width="100" height="100" lightbox></amp-img>
<amp-img src="bird.jpg" width="100" height="100" lightbox></amp-img>

Display a lightbox with <amp-carousel>

You can add the lightbox attribute on an <amp-carousel> to lightbox all of its children. Currently, the <amp-lightbox-gallery> component only supports carousels containing <amp-img> as children. As you navigate through the carousel items in the lightbox, the original carousel slides are synchronized so that when the lightbox is closed, the user ends up on the same slide as they were originally on. Currently, only the type='slides' carousel is supported.

<amp-carousel
  lightbox
  width="1600"
  height="900"
  layout="responsive"
  type="slides"
>
  <amp-img src="image1" width="200" height="100"></amp-img>
  <amp-img src="image1" width="200" height="100"></amp-img>
  <amp-img src="image1" width="200" height="100"></amp-img>
</amp-carousel>

Add captions

Optionally, you can specify a caption for each element in the lightbox. These fields are automatically read and displayed by the <amp-lightbox-gallery> in the following order of priority:

  • figcaption (if the lightboxed element is the child of a figure)
  • aria-describedby
  • alt
  • aria-label
  • aria-labelledby

In the following example, <amp-lightbox-gallery> displays the figcaption value as its description, showing "Toront's CN tower was ....".

<figure>
  <amp-img
    id="hero-img"
    lightbox="toronto"
    src="https://picsum.photos/1600/900?image=1075"
    layout="responsive"
    width="1600"
    height="900"
    alt="Picture of CN tower."
  >
  </amp-img>
  <figcaption class="image">
    Toronto's CN tower was built in 1976 and was the tallest free-standing
    structure until 2007.
  </figcaption>
</figure>

In the following example, <amp-lightbox-gallery> displays the alt value as its description, showing "Picture of CN tower".

<amp-img
  id="hero-img"
  lightbox="toronto"
  src="https://picsum.photos/1600/900?image=1075"
  layout="responsive"
  width="1600"
  height="900"
  alt="Picture of CN tower"
>
</amp-img>

Implement thumbnail previews

Lightboxed items have a thumbnail gallery view. You can optionally specify a thumbnail item for your lightboxed element via the attribute lightbox-thumbnail-id that references the id of an <amp-img> element with layout="nodisplay".

<amp-youtube
  width="480"
  height="270"
  layout="responsive"
  data-videoid="lBTCB7yLs8Y"
  lightbox-thumbnail-id="my-thumbnail-img"
>
</amp-youtube>

<amp-img
  id="my-thumbnail-img"
  width="200"
  height="200"
  layout="nodisplay"
  src="https://picsum.photos/200/200?image=1074"
>
</amp-img>

If no thumbnail is specified, <amp-img> elements will be cropped per object-fit: cover, <amp-video> will use the image src specified in its poster attribute, and placeholder images will be used for lightboxed elements that have one.

Styling

You can style the caption of a amp-lightbox-gallery component by targeting the amp-lightbox-gallery-caption class with standard CSS. Some of the properties that can be styled are font-size and color.

Actions

open

Opens the lightbox gallery. Can be triggered by tapping another element, if you specify the image id: on="tap:amp-lightbox-gallery.open(id='image-id')".

Analytics

      "requests": {
        "open": "https://foo.com/open"
      },
      "triggers": {
        "trackLightboxOpened": {
          "on": "lightboxOpened",
          "request": "open"
        }
      }
    }
  </script>
</amp-analytics>

thumbnailsViewToggled

This event tracks when the thumbnails view is triggered by clicking on the trigger when the user is in the lightbox view.

You can track this event using the following code snippet:

<amp-analytics>
  <script type="application/json">
    {
      "requests": {
        "thumb": "https://foo.com/thumb"
      },

          "request": "thumb"
        }
      }
    }
  </script>
</amp-analytics>

descriptionOverflowToggled

This event tracks when the user toggles the description by clicking on the description to expand/collapse it, tracking engagement with the description for the lightboxed image.

You can track this event using the following code snippet:

<amp-analytics>
  <script type="application/json">
    {
      "requests": {
        "descOverflow": "https://foo.com/descOverflow"
