jQuery Image Slideshow With A Cool Slider Control - sampSlider

sampSlider is a jQuery slideshow/carousel plugin to cycle through a list of images through a bottom slider control that supports both& mouse drag and touch swipe.

How to use it:

1. Include the sampslider.css in the header for the basic slideshow styles.

<link href="sampslider.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Load the sampslider.js after your jQuery library.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="sampslider.js"></script>

3. Create a list of images and insert them into the slideshow as follow.

<div id="demo" class="samp-slider samp-slider-mask">    
  <ul class="samp-container-horizontal">
    <li class="samp-container"><img src="slides/1.jpg"></li>
    <li class="samp-container"><img src="slides/2.jpg"></li>
    <li class="samp-container"><img src="slides/3.jpg"></li>
    <li class="samp-container"><img src="slides/4.jpg"></li>
    <li class="samp-container"><img src="slides/5.jpg"></li>
    <li class="samp-container"><img src="slides/6.jpg"></li>

4. Call the plugin on the parent container to initialize the slideshow.


5. All the default options.


// auto size images
autosize: true,

// width of the slideshow
width: 900,

// width overrides height with aspect ratio
height: 600,

// overrides autosize. when false it is calculated
aspectratio: false,

// 0 or delay in milliseconds
