Major issue released:

  • Solved the containment issue; now the image never goes out from the screen!
    It needs the jQuery UI 1.7.1


jquery.js (1.3)
ui.core.js (1.7.1)
ui.draggable.js (1.7.1)

How does it work:

here is the js call:

$("#navArea").imageNavigator( {
areaWidth: 700,
draggerStyle:"1px dotted red",


here is the code for each container:

<div id="navArea">
<div imageUrl="DSC00844.JPG" navPosition="BR" navWidth="100" style="display:none;">


areaWidth and areaHeight are the width and the height of the display;
draggerStyleis the style of the draggable rectangle on the thumb;
navOpacity is the alpha opacity of the thumb on the image.

Then, on each element, you set the url of the big image (imageUrl), the position of the thumb (navPosition : BL, BR, TL, TR) and the width of the navigator(navWidth);
there is a span with the title of the mage, and a div with the description.

You can navigate your image either dragging the big one or dragging the navigator into the thumbnail; if you want to see all the image in the display just doubleclick on the image or on the navigator; to restore the view doubleclick again.

That’s all; Enjoy yourself!
