ajax tabs in lightbox

I try to put some tabs in a ligtbox (lightview) to do a user friendly
form, kind of. With lightbox i mean a modal window.

The tabs (livipipe) works well withe ajax in the normal window, but
when I put them in the ligtview ligtbox they stop working. I guess it
has something to do with getelementbyid in the DOM and seems very
complicated.

Anyhow, does anyone have any experience of doing ajax tabs in a
lightbox that works?

The thing I've run into with lightboxes is that they typically *don't*
generate another document.ready-style event, so a lot of unobtrusive
JS methods can get confused. Can you post more details about how
you're attempting to add the tab behavior and what exactly "isn't
working"?

This has nothing to do with Rails. It's a JavaScript issue, so you'll
probably get better answers on a JavaScript forum.

Best,

Figured it out at last.
