Default GAL PopUp Ajax-Post Read - possible?

I have pretty crazy expectation form GAL :-)

Situation: I have set-up GAL link to the certain post (lets say it is 100 words explanation of some keyword).

I wish that inside of the pop-up frame of the GAL -link will be "read" link that instead of redirecting to the post will AJAX-LOAD the content of the post into the pop-up frame.

Is this crazy idea possible to tweak with GAL (in the future?)?

If you mean... are there plans to make GAL link after page load via AJAX, then the answer is: most likely. Originally I had a solution to this, however it had to get scrapped as it morphed. Ill check back into it once 5.0 stabalizes a bit more.

THanks

I wish I understand what you mean .-) To me it sounds that you mean just changing java technology to Ajax???

I will try to explain what I mean.

Lets say that we have GAL link for word "GARS". What do we see after hovering over word GARS is some short text about GARS ending with "read more..." link.
HERE WE GO.... Somebody click "read more..." link within GAL -hower window. Instead of going to new page where is more about GARS product, AJAX will bring that text to GAL -hover window.

Hey Kafi,

Currently, GAL uses javascript and DHTML to show the popups. AJAX uses javascript to perform functions primarily aimed at getting external information from other pages (or sources) without requiring another page load. There are numerous examples of this in vB (and more coming out al the time). For instance, in vb3.5x and higher uses ajax for the quick reply. In the past, you would enter your text into the quick reply box and the page would have to reload to save your message and show you the post. Using AJAX, the page doesnt have to reload for this.
I assumed you were asking if GAL would use AJAX to load the popups after the page itself had loaded. This would speed up page load time (to a degree) and is somthing I have looked into and would like to impliment if possible.

If I understand you correctly, you are actually asking if the text of the popup could be fetched dynamically. THis is possible, but a little cumbersome to do... however if I had maybe a couple more examples of the usage you had in mind, I could comment further.

Thanks!
