Commercial licenses are available for developers that would like to use Shadowbox on a commercial website.
What sets Shadowbox apart from every other “box” out there?
The simplest way to use Shadowbox is to display a single piece of content, with a thumbnail link on the page. When the user clicks on the thumbnail, Shadowbox will open to display a larger version of the image.
Shadowbox is able to display Flash through the use of Adobe’s Flash Player browser plugin. If Flash is not available, the user will be prompted to download and install it before they can view the content.

In addition to images and Flash, Shadowbox supports all of the web’s most popular movie formats including QuickTime, Flash video, and Windows Media Player.

When displaying images, you have some flexibility in deciding how the image will appear in browsers that are too small to display the entire image at once. The following three examples display the same image but each uses a different value for the handleOversize option. Note: You may have to shrink your browser window to view the difference between the various options here.
Many more examples can be found in the source.

Shadowbox was inspired by Lightbox and LightWindow. Credit should be given to the authors of those libraries for the basic idea behind Shadowbox.
