    Is it possible to get Mal's Cart to work in a Lightbox or I-Frame or Panel, rather than opening a new page or navigating from the page?

    I am using Serif WebPlus X6, it has predefined wizard for Mal's Cart, on the form, I can alter the html using a provided lightbox script.

    I hacked a button to open the results in a lightbox using:
    target="_self" rev="wplightbox~#~~#~~#~800~#~600"

    I cannot get this to work on an actual form, which I need to due to the fact that I have items with a changing price drop down.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry Don, I must be missing something, I just added a product to my cart, top right, checkout and Mal's opens fully in the same window:

    Product Quantity Price Amount
    DBZC - Don Barrow Remote ZERO CONTROL unit
    Delete 47.25 47.25
    All Sales are in GBP Pound Sterling Subtotal 47.25
    Delivery 0.00
    TOTAL 47.25

    For an Iframe I use:

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.

    It is possible but I'm sorry that I don't have the time to walk you through it, if you want to dive into my source code you can visit my website

    Click one of the BUY A LICENSE buttons and you'll see it pop up, then select an option and add to cart, also the View Cart button pops up too. I use FancyBox.

    Then when they click checkout through PayPal button it closes the popup and loads PayPal payment page, I tried to make it very clean and seamless.

    Nate, it just goes to the cart, it doesn't pop up on my browser.

    Oops, just noticed how old this post is.

    Would be interested in any good answers to the original question though.

    Life is too short to work 8 hours a day - thats why I work 16 :-)
