[resolved] iframe pixel width/height not working (5 posts)

    I'm trying to show an iframe in the Orangebox, but I'm having a problem while setting the width and height to anything but the default 0.75 (%).

    When I set each dimension to a pixel value (ie. 600 and 362), the frame shows as a white box(much larger than the dimensions specified) with only about a quarter of the actual content showing up.

    Any ideas?

    It seems that the video URL I was trying to embed in the iframe needed to NOT have a size declaration (ie. &size=large). The percentages worked after removing that, although I'd love to be able to control the size of the video, then match the iframe. Wishful thinking?

    Having the same problem again, but with set pixel dimensions. I still can't include a url size declaration, but the Orangebox lightbox is also not responding to the pixel dimensions I give it for the iframe I'm trying to include.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    I'm also having this issue with the lightbox with a flash file. I am using the suggested use as in the documentation: <a href="/flashfile.swf?width=440&height=200" rel="lightbox">link</a>
    but it comes up the wrong size or not at all.

    Would also appreciate any feedback!

    Due to the silence from the OrangeBox developers, I ended up using Lightbox Plus instead. Works like a charm.
