I have a web application that has a faceted search feature, that will filter results in realtime based on search criteria. In order to allow the user to easily view each item in the results without having to reload the page multiple times, detailed information is displayed in a lightbox when the result is clicked.
The flow works nicely, however within the lightbox are three buttons to download various documents. If they were just downloading the files directly this wouldn't pose a problem, however I need to display the option to either download or email the file after clicking the button (client requested).
The only thing that came to mind was to open another dialogue in a lightbox with the download link and email form, however this seems to be a bad idea for usability.
Are there any alternatives to a lightbox ontop of a lightbox that would work here? (without having to move the original lightbox to a new page)
