Load Marketo Form Lightbox upon clicking specific link on landing page

<script src="//app-sjn.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.min.js"></script>
<form id="mktoForm_1886"></form>
<script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-sjn.marketo.com", "912-DWT-370", 1886);</script>‍‍‍

Hello Community! 

I would like to use the lightbox form code below (vanilla script from my instance) on a landing page. I know that using the script as-is will simply fire upon a page load, but I would like it to load when a user clicks a specific link.

I don't know enough about js in order to implement the script that way, so any suggestions would be super appreciated!

<script src="//app-sjn.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.min.js"></script>
<form id="mktoForm_1886"></form>
<script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-sjn.marketo.com", "912-DWT-370", 1886, function (form){MktoForms2.lightbox(form).show();});</script>

Please highlight the code using the Advanced Editor's syntax highlighter. Then we'll continue.

Hi Sanford, thanks for your reply. I apologize I am not sure how to provide the code to you in that format. Would it help if I provide you a URL so you can inspect the page?

3. Paste your code in the dialogue box that appears, making sure you select the appropriate language.

Sending a link helps to see how the script works within your live environment, so it's helpful to include.

What Josh said. After highlighting you'd want to look at this example:

   MktoForms2 :: Detect Link that Launched Lightbox 

The JS there shows how to attach the lightbox not just to one link, but potentially to several links, logging which one the person clicked to finally fill out the form.

It's a little off-topic in terms of using the native Marketo Form Pop-Up but if you're building with Bootstrap I find it's easier to include a modal (pop-up) that contains your form and then it's much easier to change the trigger (or have multiple triggers) that fire the modal with your form inside.

Here's a link to the Bootstrap modal information if you're curious about how that works and the different options you'd get out-of-the-box: https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.3/components/modal/
