How would you add next and previous buttons to browse the images instead of exiting on click.


//Problem: User when clicking on image goes to a dead end 
//Solution: Create an overlay with the large image - Lightbox
var $overlay = $('<div id="overlay"></div>');
var $image = $("<img>");
var $caption = $("<p></p>");

//An Image to overlay

//Add caption to overlay

//Add overlay

  // A caption

//1. Capture the click event on a link to an image
$("#imageGallery a").click(function(event){
  var imageLocation = $(this).attr("href");
   //1.2 Update overlay with the image linked in the link
   $image.attr("src", imageLocation);

  //1.1 Show the overlay

  //1.3 Get child alt atribute and set caption
  var captionText = $(this).children("img").attr("alt");

//3 When overlay is clicked 
//3.1 Hide the overlay

Ps. you can edit the question to view how I fixed it.

:x: You can't share a direct URL to your workspace, it's private just for you and only exists while you are using it.

:information_source: But you can use the snapshot function in the workspace and provide the link to that.

Here is a snapshot of my workspace. Thank you in advance! https://w.trhou.se/kxvexvsr8o
