1. What does the component do?

It is used to display detailed information of a content page.

2. When should the component be used?

  • If detailed or additional information has to be shown on-demand on part of a page (for example, additional support when the tooltip is not sufficient).
  • To display the editing mode on forms.
  • For an enlarged view of images.

3. Rules

  • The referenced page is not left.
  • When the lightbox opens, it always fills the browser window.
  • The lightbox has its own header which is always sticky.
  • Only content-describing information may appear in the header (for example, the train number).
  • The lightbox content can be created as part of basic design.

4.2 With form components

Image of the lightbox component with form components
  • A lightbox with form elements contains at least a ‘cancel’ and an ‘apply’ button.
  • The ‘cancel’ button closes the lightbox again.
  • If the lightbox is closed (‘cancel’ or X-button) when existing entries in the form have been changed, a warning message appears indicating that the form contains unsaved data.
  • The buttons of a form (‘cancel’, ‘apply’, other functions) may be inserted in the footer. * The footer is always sticky and is displayed across the entire width of the lightbox (the same as the header).
